The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Saturday finally agreed to implement a few of the recommendations proposed by the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee in Mumbai. The BCCI agreed to form an apex council, but with certain modifications. It also agreed to include a representative of the Comptroller and Auditor General as a member of its council as well as in the IPL governing council.

The Indian cricket board also decided to bring in various new committees, including the special committee for the differently-abled and a women’s committee. The board also decided to create a players' association. The board members were unanimous in giving voting rights to associate members as per guidelines by the International Cricket Council, with Puducherry being granted associate membership.

The board's Special General Meeting was adjourned on Friday owing to technical issues, but all members attended the rescheduled one on Saturday with the required documents. The Lodha panel had approached the Supreme Court on Thursday asking for the BCCI's top officials, including its chief Anurag Thakur, to be dismissed for not implementing its recommendations. The court had subsequently rebuked the BCCI.

The Lodha committee was formed after the spot-fixing and betting scandal emerged during the Indian Premier League in 2013. The panel had set two deadlines for BCCI – September 30 to make constitutional changes and December 15 to form a nine-member apex committee that will replace the working committee.
