The answer is plain and simple. It is part of the raft of the reforms suggested by the Lodha Committee, which was instituted after the match-fixing and spot-fixing scandal that erupted during the Indian Premier League in 2013.
The Supreme Court of India appointed a four-member committee headed by Justice Mukul Mudgal to conduct an independent inquiry into the allegations of corruptions and the involvement of officials and players.
The court then appointed another committee under Justice R.M. Lodha, which was called the Lodha Committee. It mainly focused on three main tasks — punishing those found guilty by the Mudgal Committee, scrutinising the role of COO Sundar Raman in the IPL spot-fixing scam and providing more transparency in the functioning of BCCI to avoid further stings.
