He further said that due to the Supreme Court's order on the Justice RM Lodha Committee's reforms in the BCCI, cricket as a sport is being affected in the international arena.

The court however shot back at the AG and asked, "where were you when the order on the Lodha panel was passed?"

Earlier the court rejected the 9 names submitted by the BCCI for the post of administrators.

The court however granted permission to suggest for an interim panel to run Indian cricket.

The court had said that any administrator above the age of 70 years would not be appointed.
