With the BCCI facing Supreme Court-appointed Lodha panel’s deadline on implementing major reforms in the world’s richest cricket body, its president Anurag Thakur on Friday said that people who had not played the game were trying to administer it.

“People who have never even played the game, they are trying to govern the board. Efforts are being made to cut BCCI’s roots,” said Thakur at an event here.

 

The Supreme Court had upheld most of the sweeping recommendations of the Lodha panel including age cap of 70 for the BCCI office-bearers, cooling off-period, one state one vote and ban on ministers and bureaucrats.

Among other recommendations upheld by the apex court is that an office-bearer cannot hold multiple posts in BCCI or its affiliated units and Thakur is also the president of the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association.

Thakur, at the same event, also hit out at columnist Shobhaa De for her controversial tweet about the Indian athletes competing in the Olympics. “Her remarks were in bad taste. It was unbecoming of her. The athletes have to shed a lot of blood and sweat to reach the highest level,” he said.
