The Justice R M Lodha panel in its status report filed before the Supreme Court (SC) has sought the replacement of top brass of the BCCI with cricket administrators including its President Anurag Thakur and Secretary Ajay Shirke. The panel said that the BCCI and its office bearers are not complying with directions and repeatedly issuing statements to undermine the authority of the court.
It was observed that BCCI was not replying to emails and other communications sent to them and repeatedly defying the orders of the court.
Chief Justice T S Thakur said these are serious allegations and BCCI has to follow the directions of the court.
The Supreme Court Said, “If the BCCI thinks that they are law unto themselves, then they are wrong. They have to comply with the directions of the court.”
The bench posted the matter for hearing on October 6.
