SC gives BCCI till Friday to implement Lodha reforms 'unconditionally'
The Supreme Court during the hearing on Thursday has given the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) time until tomorrow to "unconditionally" implement the reforms recommended by the Lodha Committee.
If the Indian cricket board fails to do so, the Supreme Court will have to pass its orders and take over the administration of the BCCI. The court also ordered the BCCI to cease payments to state associations that do not fall in line or refuse to accept the reforms. The Cout noted that the associations had no right to demand money from the BCCI.
According to ANI, the apex court even observed that "either BCCI elects new administrators or Lodha panel gives more time to BCCI to fall in line."
Meanwhile, Anurag Thakur, whose position as the BCCI chief is in danger, has not guaranteed about implying the reforms by Friday.
