Cricket Board of Control for Cricket in India, Amitabh Choudhary N Srinivasan Justice Lodha Panel Committee of Admini

Srinivasan represented the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, attended the Board's Special General Meeting on May 7 and June 26 despite being deemed disqualified through the 70-year age cap for administrators.

The next hearing of their case will be heard on July 24 while a plea by some associations debarring them as permanent members of BCCI to be heard on September 5.

Committee of Administrators (CoA) headed by former CAG Vinod Rai, in its fourth status report, annexed a CD of the recent SGM and said that both Srinivasan and Shah were disqualified from holding any post by virtue of the apex court order and they can not attend the SGM as a nominee of the state cricket associations.

It was the fourth status report submitted by the CoA to the Supreme Court.

However, according to amicus curiae Gopal Subramanium, when the wider BCCI body held special general meetings to discuss and ratify the shortlisted recommendations, the meetings were "hijacked" by Srinivasan and Shah. "There is an increasingly anti-Srinivasan and anti-Shah atmosphere here", senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for some of the State associations, countered. "Such disqualified persons have a vested interest in stalling implementation of the Judgement because, if the Judgment is implemented, such disqualified person will have to relinquish control over their respective State/Member Associations".

On Thursday, Thakur had tendered apology in the top court after the three-judge bench, headed by Justice Dipak Misra and comprising of Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud, had earlier asked the former president for the same.

Limaye sought to be relieved on account of his appointment as managing director of the National Stock Exchange. Guha had stepped down from the post in June while Limaye held his position till Friday. And according to the CoA's latest status report, Srinivasan and Shah have prevented other BCCI members from reaching a consensus on implementing the Lodha Committee's recommendations.

The Apex Court had also asked him to be present on July 14 to tender the apology, indicating that it was willing to accept the apology and close the contempt proceedings against Thakur.
