Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA), the suspended full member of the BCCI, has addressed a letter to the Board president and secretary, and has sent a copy to the Justice Lodha Committee saying that it intended to participate in the meeting to be held in New Delhi on Saturday.

The RCA secretary Sumendra Tiwari said: "The RCA is committed to implementing the Lodha Committee recommendations and wants to put forward its views to the other members about the advantages of implementing the recommendations.

"We also intend to raise an issue with regard to the amount of money spent by way of legal and professional expenses to resist implementation of the recommendations,’’ he said.

While the RCA has claimed its right to be given notice for meetings, the Supreme Court, by its order of July 18, had said: "In States where there are disputes concerning the appropriate governing body (Jammu & Kashmir, Bihar and Rajasthan, etc) it is best left to the BCCI or the Court (as may be the case), to decide which association would represent the State.’’

After being suspended on May 6, 2014, the RCA has not been allowed to attend any meeting of the BCCI and it does not receive any money too from the national body.
