Justice Rajendra Mal Lodha (RM Lodha), former Chief Justice of India and head of the Lodha Panel, has said the Lodha recommendations, suggested by his committee, were designed only after consulting former office bearers and veteran cricketers.

“We spoke to everyone, discussed (the reforms) with all the office-bearers, from Jagmohan Dalmiya (the then BCCI president), Anurag Thakur (the then board secretary), all the board vice-presidents, Anirudh Chaudhary (treasurer) and Amitabh Chaudhary (secretary). We spoke to former India captains like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, Kapil Dev and Bishan Singh Bedi.”

The Supreme court of India, led by new CJI Jagdish Singh Khehar, will appoint the new BCCI’s administrators on January 19 and Justice Lodha showed positive signs that the implementations of his panel will soon be implemented and the work will move fast once the Supreme Court announce a verdict over this. 
“Just wait until the 19th. As soon as the administrators are appointed by the SC, and they take over, things will move fast. Better late than never. There’s been a delay of six months, but I think that’ll be repaired now.
“The idea is to do your best and then leave it for the others to come. The point is that the big pool of talent that we have… you can’t stick to a job for decades. Give an opportunity to others to come out with new ideas. It’s always an infusion of new blood that brings new thinking,” he added.
The Supreme Court of India led by former CJI T.S. Thakur sacked Anurag Thakur and Ajay Shirke from the post of BCCI President and secretary respectively as the apex board failed to implement the Lodha recommendations in full. As a result of it, many veteran administrators also resigned from their posts after an order by the Supreme Court on January 2.
