The removal of Anurag Thakur as the cricket board (BCCI) president was a logical consequence by the Supreme Court, Justice R.M. Lodha said on Monday. The apex court, which also ordered the sacking of secretary Ajay Shirke, said that all the recommendations of the Lodha panel must be implemented in toto. The bench comprising judges Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud also issued a contempt notice to Anurag Thakur. "Once committee's reforms were accepted by the Supreme Court in its July 18 order, it had to be implemented. This is a logical consequence," Justice Lodha said.
