Special Bench of Chief Justice T.S. Thakur and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud heard the Supreme Court-appointed former Chief Justice of India R.M. Lodha-led committee’s recommendation to expel the complete brass of the cash-rich Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), including its president and BJP MP Anurag Thakur.
During the proceedings CJI Thakur asked a lawyer: Did you say Anurag Thakur is a first class ‘player’ or a first class cricketer?
Sibal on behalf of BCCI said that SGM disbursed Rs. 400cr on routine expense for 2015. No future expense was covered in this as alleged by Lodha.
Anurag Thakur is a cricketer, says Kapil Sibal. CJI Thakur replied, “We r all cricketers here, Mr. Sibal. I was captain of SC judges team against the Bar.”
