The Supreme court hearing on a tussle between BCCI and the Lodha Panel has again been adjourned, this time till December 14 as BCCI is not ready to accept all the recommendations suggested by Lodha Committee. The Lodha committee wants the top brass of BCCI to be shelved including the board president Anurag Thakur. The panel also suggests a cooling off period for three years between two years for administrators, in addition to that, the Lodha panel also recommends an age barrier of 70 years for all the officials. BCCI is opposing recommendations of the committee formed by the apex court.
The matter is still sub judice and the proceeding has been delayed again. However, in between, Supreme Court passed an order and barred BCCI from disbursing any amount from their account which means effectively seizing their accounts. They asked Lodha Panel to take the charge and made them responsible for overseeing the financial transactions of the board.
This order irked BCCI and in past, many times, they have warned about cancelling the ongoing series of India but every time it has proved to be just a threat.
A couple of days back, BCCI revert to the apex court in order to get funds to organise the last two Test matches and the ODI series against England.
Supreme court agreed to the demand of BCCI and ordered the Lodha Panel to disburse the funds to let BCCI organise the upcoming series comfortably and smoothly without any lack of funds.
The matter will again be heard in the apex court on December 14.
