- The CoA sent the draft resolution to the state associations, including the Associate BCCI member units, on Sunday.
- On Monday, the court rejected the appeals of the Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) and the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA), both of whom had approached the BCCI funds for separate reasons.
- Barring the Vidarbha Cricket Association, which approved the Lodha recommendations without any protest, no other BCCI member has complied with the court order so far.
- The CoA also said it was "regrettable" that state associations continued to defy the court orders despite such a move having the "potential" to "prejudicially affect cricketing activity."
- "By adopting this resolution, the State Associations will enable BCCI to release additional funds to them in a manner compliant with the orders passed by the Hon'ble Supreme Court."

- However, there remains no clarity on who if anyone instructed the players to manipulate the result.
- "We can't pinpoint it was this person or that person who made the decision," chief inquirer Asela Rekawa said.

- So there was no defense taken that he was not there and he didn't know anything about [the decision to manipulate the result].
- Rekawa and SLC did concede that having taken the decision to suspend the players, the board could be the subject of a legal challenge from them.

- Tony Irish, the South Africa Cricketers' Association (SACA) head had pointed out in August that a "grueling schedule" was unhealthy and would "compound" the workload of the players.
- Lorgat's delicate tone may have a lot to do with the knowledge that India's last tour to South Africa, in the summer of 2013, was severely curtailed following issues between the two boards.
- The India tour is also significant because it could see AB de Villiers make a return to Test cricket, after a hiatus since January 2016.
