The Supreme Court-appointed Justice Lodha committee on Wednesday submitted a report to the apex court, accusing the Board of Control for Cricket in India of flouting the panel’s recommendations on bringing changes in its governance. The Lodha committee has sought the removal of BCCI President Anurag Thakur and Secretary Ajay Sirke, PTI reported.

The panel told the Supreme Court that the cricketing body had violated court orders on the number of selectors, meetings and preparation of road map on implementation of its recommendations. The move comes after the BCCI appointed a five-member selection panel during its Annual General Meeting on September 21 in contravention to the committee's guidelines.

The Lodha panel, which had earlier warned the BCCI to not conduct any business related to 2016-'17, has now requested an urgent hearing. The chief justice is likely to take up the matter soon, reported NDTV.

The 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, reported NDTV.
