COA to meet state units on June 25
The process of implementing the Lodha Committee reforms in the BCCI may receive a fresh boost when the Committee of Administrators (CoA) will hold a meeting with the state associations of the Board on June 25.
"The COA will take an update from the association on how far they've gone about in implementing the Lodha reforms, and what are the problems being encountered while doing so," a source told TOI on Wednesday.
This meet will be followed by a Special General Meeting (SGM) to discuss the Lodha reforms here on the next day i.e. June 26.
Meanwhile, the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has delayed its call on deciding the date of SGM after hearing from the COA. The association, which had its AGM last evening, has decided to wait and watch the developments of next month.
Meanwhile, few members were upset that the AGM, which began at 6pm, was wound up by 730pm, as MCA President Ashish Shelar had organized a felicitation function for ex-ICC, BCCI and MCA chief Sharad Pawar, which was attended by Mumbai greats Sunil Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar, Ajit Wadekar and Madhav Apte. 
"This is no way to conduct an AGM. Where was the scope and time to discuss important topics affecting Mumbai cricket," asked a member.
