The Lodha Committee, on 21 November, in its latest report said that the top brass of the BCCI should be sacked. The Lodha Committee also suggested that former home secretary GK Pillai should be appointed as an observer to supervise the Board's administration.

The report says Pillai should act as an observer to conduct the task of appointing auditors for awarding BCCI contracts like that for media rights for future editions of the Indian Premier League or IPL.

The Supreme Court had appointment the Lodha Committee after a betting scandal in the IPL to suggest reforms in the BCCI's functioning. Since then, the BCCI and Lodha Committee are at loggerheads about the reforms which have to be implemented.

The BCCI says it will be impossible to implement all the Panel's proposals, which include an age and tenure cap for top officials and a one-state-one-vote.
