The spat between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Lodha Committee is getting uglier day by day. It seems that the current President of BCCI Anurag Thakur is likely to be replaced by GK Pillai, who was the former home secretary of India.

 

This is likely to happen soon because the Lodha Panel has submitted a statement to the Supreme Court stating that the top brass officials in BCCI will have to step down and Anurag Thakur is right at the top of that list.

 

The Lodha Panel stated that Pillai, who is a retired IAS officer, should be appointed as the observer of BCCI.

 

BCCI and the Lodha Committee have been against each other right from the start of the affairs. India cricket’s governing body never wanted to accept all the reforms suggested by the Panel and they had clearly stated that it is impossible to agree to all the reforms.

 

However, BCCI now have a deadline till December 3, 2016 to come up with a response and accept the Lodha Committee recommendations.
