The Supreme Court-appointed Justice Lodha Committee approached the apex court on Wednesday, stating that the Board of Control for Cricket in India has turned a blind eye to its recommendations on bringing changes to its governance. The committee also sought the removal of the BCCI's top functionaries, including President Anurag Thakur and Secretary Ajay Shirke, for non-compliance of its orders.

The Lodha panel had set the BCCI two deadlines – September 30 to make constitutional changes, and December 15 for the board to form a nine-member apex committee that will replace the working committee. During its Annual General Meeting on September 21, the BCCI flouted the Lodha panel's guidelines by naming several committees that will be effective for 2016-'17.

Chief Justice of India TS Thakur, who was part of the bench that appointed the Lodha panel, said: "If BCCI thinks they are law unto themselves, they are wrong. When the high powered committee gives its report, we don't expect this sort of conduct from BCCI. Fall in line otherwise we will pass orders."

The BCCI has called for a Special General Meeting on September 30.
