BCCI president, secretary removed for stalling reforms

Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke were removed by the Supreme Court on Monday for failing to implement administrative reforms within the body. In July, the court accepted most of the recommendations of a three-member panel it had set up to look into the operations of the world's richest cricket board following a fixing scandal during the 2013 Indian Premier League Twenty20 competition.

The BCCI rejected a few of the recommendations made by the panel headed by former chief justice R.M. Lodha, which included age and tenure restrictions for top officials, as well as banning them from serving successive terms.
