New Delhi: In tongue-and-cheek remarks, NCP leader Sharad Pawar said the Supreme Court (SC), which has so far been guiding how to run the country, will now decide how to organise cricket.

"The matter is in Supreme Court and it is now going to decide how cricket will be organised. Till yesterday, they were guiding how to run the country. Now, they are also guiding the sports organisation," he said while addressing the 89th annual general meeting of industry chamber FICCI here.

Pawar, who was also the former president of International Cricket Council (ICC), did not wish to elaborate on the issue, saying "I don't want to say anything about that. I don't want to face contempt of court."

The apex court has taken a strong view against BCCI for not implementing the recommendations of the Justice RM Lodha Committee.
