The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will today hold an emergency Special General Meeting (SGM) to discuss the Justice RM Lodha panel recommendations.

The board is under immense pressure from the apex court to implement the panel recommendations. 

Last week, the court had passed an interim order directing the board and state associations to respond by October 17 whether they would "unconditionally" comply with the Lodha Committee's recommendations.

Today’s SGM is the second such emergent meeting called by the BCCI in the last two weeks after the October 1 SGM, where a defiant BCCI board agreed to adopt some of the recommendations.

Infuriated by the BCCI's decision, the three-judge bench warned the board to stop issuing funds to errant state associations which did not implement the recommendations.

Both BCCI President Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke are currently in Cape Town, South Africa for the International Cricket Council (ICC) meetings, which started on Monday and will culminate on Friday.
