In a big blow for the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the Supreme Court has removed Anurag Thakur from the post of BCCI President for not complying with the orders of the apex court with regards to implementation of the Lodha committee reforms.
 
The order comes after Lodha Committee’s third status report which was submitted on November 14, asking for the disqualification of office-bearers of the BCCI and all state associations. The Supreme Court is also set to replace the top brass of the cricket board with panel of administrators. The court has sought new names for the same. The next hearing will be on January 19.
 
The Supreme Court also removed Ajay Shirke from the post of Secretary.
 
Justice RM Lodha, who was heading the panel set up by the SC, spoke to the media and said that if the apex court's orders are not followed then consequences will be dire and that is what has happened in the case of the BCCI top brass.
 
The former Chief Justice of India said"I don't want to read whether the BCCI was overconfident or not, the apex court's decision is the law of the land and everyone has to follow it," .
