The Supreme Court Thursday agreed to examine the RM Lodha panel’s plea to supersede office bearers of the BCCI with a panel of administrators.
Writing that we have high regards for this court is fine but this respect had to be shown in your deeds, the top court told the BCCI.
Earlier in July, the top court had asked the cricket body to implement the reforms suggested by the Lodha panel.
However, the cricket body had refused to accept some of the big recommendations made at its Special General Meeting such as appointing of three selectors with Test experience, specific tenures for BCCI officials, cooling off period for the administrators, one state-one vote policy as the biggest points of difference. Some of the minor recommendations were complied with but the bigger points in the clean-up process were not adhered to by the board members.
In response to the status report submitted by the former Chief JusticeLodha-led panel, Supreme Court lambasted BCCI for not “falling in line” and warned them of dire consequences of face contempt of court charges. Catch live updates of BCCI vs Justice Lodha panel’s hearing at the Supreme Court.
