New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Wednesday agreed to hear a plea seeking to declare the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as a national sports body.
"The petition is either to convert the BCCI into a national sport federation (NSF) or create an NSF for cricket. The question is whether it (NSF) is needed to be declared," said a division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and R.S. Endlaw. (Sunil Gavaskar Relieved of BCCI Duties by Supreme Court)
The court's direction came as the central government said it cannot "govern or guide" the BCCI.
