Srinivasan's affidavit to the SC also stated that many state associations are against the reforms suggested by the Lodha Panel, and CoA's claim that they are in "mutual consensus" with the associations are totally false.

The affidavit says, "The entire basis of the allegations made by the CoA is unsubstantiated, hypothetical and contrary to the facts on record."

Niranjan Shah too submits an affidavit

Former Saurashtra Cricket Association boss Niranjan Shah also submitted an affidavit to the SC, stating that the CoA's approach was not democratic. He also rubbished CoA's allegations of him being "disruptive and subversive."
