In a stern order, Supreme Court said that BCCI should give an undertaking that it will implement Lodha Committee directions unconditionally or else the Court will have to pass orders. “SC will pass order tomorrow if BCCI refuses to give any undertaking,” court added.

Supreme Court also gave direction to BCCI not to pay money to associations that don’t fall in the line and those who are not accepting the reforms. “Stop all disbursements to state associations,” the court said.

BCCI Vs Lodha Panel Committee BCCI has earlier brought senior Supreme Court advocate Kapil Sibal on board to counsel its case. The board's contention was that the Lodha Committee has gone beyond its brief and the reforms suggested by the committee will sound the death knell for Indian cricket and destroy the BCCI.

According to the sources, the Lodha Committee will in turn cite 16 ‘acts of defiance’ by the BCCI, which it believes will lead to the reforms that are not being implemented in totality so far.
