The Attorney General of India, Mukul Rohatgi, however, urged the court not to appoint administrators to the BCCI. He also sought for two weeks time and requested the court to adjourn the matter by two weeks.

He further said that due to the Supreme Court’s order on the Lodha Panel reforms in the BCCI, cricket as a sport is being affected in the international arena. The court, however, shot back at the AG and asked, ” where were you when the order on the Lodha Panel was passed?”

Earlier the court rejected the nine names submitted by the BCCI for the post of administrators. The court however granted permission to suggest for an interim panel to run Indian cricket. The court had said that any administrator above the age of 70 would not be appointed.
