It was felt that over a period of time, the CoA had gathered a lot of acrimony vis-a-vis the state cricket associations and that had resulted in not only a deadlock, but also the inclusion of certain restrictions with regard to administration of cricket,” the official had said.While the amicus looked at the basic areas that needed amendment, the more serious issues will be addressed by the court, including those which affect the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution of India.advertisementAlso Read | BCCI state bodies look at Supreme Court with hope, hearing on ThursdayFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

(AP Photo/Andy Wong, Pool)HERE ARE THE things you need to know as we round off the day in three easy steps…THINGS WE LEARNED#PENSIONS: A report commissioned by the Department of Social Protection has outlined recommendations which may lead to mandatory pension plans for private sector workers. The OECD report said that doing so would help ensure that people have a reasonable level of income once they retire. The report recommended, however, that it should be left up to individual workers to decide exactly what sort of plan they contribute to.#ABORTION: The Minister for Health James Reilly has said that pregnant women who are suicidal will not have to face a panel of six doctors should they want to access an abortion. His denial followed reports at the weekend that suggested that the Protection of Maternal Life bill would enforce such a clause. Dr Anthony McCarthy, who is one of Ireland’s three perinatal psychiatrists, called the proposals “ridiculous” and “a sick joke”.#BOSTON: The man suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, will not be treated as an “enemy combatant” by the US, the White House revealed today as he was charged with using a weapon of mass destruction. The news came after Tsarnaev, who is believed to be suffering from a serious neck injury, awoke and responded to questions. His first hearing with be on 30 May.#JOBS: Government has published plans that it says will help to create 20,000 new jobs in the manufacturing sector by 2016. The strategy recommends building on strengths in pharma/biopharma, medical technologies, food, ICT, engineering, and off-site manufacturing (construction). Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said that the plan was achievable “with the right supports from government”.#DEFICIT: The government’s deficit for last year came in at lower than the Troika target, leading to this year’s estimate being revised, new figures released today have revealed. The news wasn’t all positive, however, as the figures also showed that government expects its debt-to-GDP ratio to hit 123 per cent at the end of this year, two percentage points higher than the estimate in last December’s Budget.THINGS WE LOVEDWith news that ATMs across Ireland will soon start dispensing €10 notes, DailyEdge.ie has six reasons why it’s great news for those of us who aren’t that flush.We love tenners!
