Ahead of the Supreme Court hearing on next week, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has called for a Special General Meeting (SGM) on Saturday to discuss the interim order passed by the apex court on recommendations passed by Lodha panel.
This week’s SGM is the second such emergency meeting called by the BCCI in the last two weeks, when a defiant BCCI agreed to adopt some of the recommendations made by the Lodha panel while leaving out certain others.
Infuriated by the BCCI’s decision, the three-judge bench warned the national cricket body’s not to “precipitate matters”. The SC had told the board to stop issuing funds to errant state associations which have not implemented the recommendations.
Both BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke are currently in Cape Town, South Africa, for the International Cricket Council (ICC) meetings, which started on Monday and will culminate on Friday.
