Senior advocates Anil Divan and Gopal Subramaniam, who have been appointed as amicus curiae to assist the court, submitted nine names in sealed covers for the proposed panel of administrators which will supervise the administration of BCCI through its Chief Executive Officer.

The apex court also today modified its January 2nd order that debarred a person having a cumulative tenure of nine years in any state association and BCCI from holding any position in the apex cricket body.

A newly-set up bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra, A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud today modified the order saying the 9-year tenure of an office bearer in state association or in the BCCI would not be considered cumulatively.
