BCCI Must Implement Lodha Panel Recommendations, Says SC

The Supreme Court today asked the cricket governing body BCCI to implement the recommendations made by the three-member committee headed by Justice RM Lodha. The BCCI declines to give undertaking not to disburse grant to state bodies and abide by all directions of Lodha panel. 

A Special Bench of judges that included Justice TS Thakur, AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud today heard the Supreme Court-appointed former Chief Justice of India RM Lodha-led committee's recommendation to oust the entire brass of the cash-rich Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), including its president and BJP MP Anurag Thakur.

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.
