BCCI vs Lodha panel reforms: Supreme Court adjourns hearing to December 9

The hearing was supposed to be on Lodha committee's third status report.

In its first status report submitted to the apex court on September 28, the Lodha panel had asked for the removal of the present set of BCCI office-bearers, to be replaced by a group of independent administrators.

In its third status report submitted on November 14, the committee altered the demand a bit, asking for the disqualification of office-bearers of the BCCI and all state associations, who become ineligible as per the apex court's July 18 order, and the appointment of former Union home secretary GK Pillai as "observer".

Earlier on Dec 2, the cricket board maintained its opposition to some of the reforms recommended by the Lodha committee and is anxiously waiting for the Supreme Court's verdict.

At a Special General Meeting, the Board did not take any decision on the recommendations but it has been learnt from sources that state associations have been told to keep a Plan B ready in case the verdict is not favourable from the apex court.

Special General Meeting witnessed Status Quo being maintained by members. Two associations Tripura and Vidarbha, who have decided to implement Lodha reforms in toto were absent.
