Anurag Thakur Sacked: What’s The Road Ahead For BCCI

The Supreme Court Monday removed Anurag Thakur as the President of the BCCI for not complying with its orders and also issued notices why contempt and perjury proceedings be not initiated against him. Replacing the top brass with a panel of administrators, the court also ordered for removal of Ajay Shirke as the BCCI Secretary and slapped show cause notices on him too. The bench said that until the names of administrators are decided, the senior most vice-president of the BCCI will chair the meetings. It, however, clarified that he could sit in the meetings if he is not otherwise disqualified on criteria of age or conflict of interest.

    Good thing done by the court and hope all the collective looters under the banner of BCCI are forced to resign or sack like Mr. Anurag Thakur and let the court cleanse the Cricket administration which is in doldrums and instead appoint Professionals and Able Retd., Administrators to run the Cricket affairs and thus make them accountable for both Action and Inaction which will bring transparency in the functioning of Cricket Administration.
