New Delhi: The BCCI has called an emergency working committee meeting in Mumbai on August 2. Though the two-point agenda includes Lodha reforms and the two-match T20 series against West Indies in Florida later next month, there are also talks that president Anurag Thakur might discuss with members his future in the top seat. As per the Lodha panel recommendations, BCCI office-bearers cannot hold positions for more than three years at a stretch and have to take a one-year cooling off period.
Thakur has spent three years as joint-secretary, secretary and president. He has to spend one year away from everything. Though it’s not clear whether Thakur will step aside immediately, it’s understood that he will begin the process so that the transition is smooth. “If Thakur steps down, we’ll have a new president in six months, which will heavily affect the board. Once the president and secretary meet Justice Lodha things will be clear,” a member told media.
