India cricket boss forced to quit board
MUMBAI: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have come down hard on president Anurag Thakur by making him leave his role as president of the Board. The final decision was taken by the country’s Supreme Court who ordered him to resign. It ruled that Thakur, who took up the position in May last year after being elected unopposed, did not implement the recommendations handed down by the Lodha Committee, most of which the court made mandatory in July last year. Another casualty was BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke, who also been told to resign. The court said it would appoint observers to run cricket administration in India until a new president and secretary were appointed.
