The CoA said that the state associations have to confirm to the judgment of the Supreme Court and report compliance within 30 days. The BCCI also reinstated former India players Gagan Khoda and Jatin Paranjpe as senior national selectors after both were removed in January last year from the selection panel for not being Test cricketers as per the requirement set by the Lodha committee.
