The BCCI had also sought an open court hearing of its plea. The matter will come up two weeks from now.

On July 18, the Supreme Court had accepted the Lodha committee recommendations which had sought reforms of the BCCI.

The court had also directed that these reforms be implemented by the BCCI. The BCCI however sought a review in a curative petition. It also said that Justice Thakur should not be part of the Bench hearing the matter.

Following the July 18 verdict, it was decided to seek a review. Justice Markandey Katju in his interim report to the Board had said that the July 18 verdict smacked of judicial overreach.

He also said that verdict was unconstitutional. Justice Katju had also said that the Lodha Panel report should have been passed on to Parliament for law making.

On Monday, the Supreme Court reserved orders on Lodha Panel's plea to appoint an administrator for the BCCI.

A Bench headed by Chief Justice of India, TS Thakur also said that it would decide whether the Lodha panel should vet the big expenses of the BCCI.
