The Board of Control for Cricket in India adjourned its Special General Meeting causing it to miss its first deadline to implement the Lodha Committee recommendations on Friday, PTI reported. The board postponed the meeting, where members were to discuss administrative changes, to Saturday citing technical reasons.
The Supreme Court had issued a warning to the board to “fall in line” or face the consequences, a directive that could mean the sacking of the board’s top management, including its president, Anurag Thakur. The apex court had ordered the board to incorporate its first phase of reforms that comprise the adoption of a new Memorandum of Association and Rules by Friday.
The meeting was adjourned after some board member units did not present requisite letters of authorisation at the meeting, according to PTI.
The board has filed a review petition in the apex court in a bid to counter the recommentations of the Lodha committee, which filed a status report listing violations committed by the BCCI. The board has until October 6 to respond to the report.
