The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear on December 5 a plea of Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) seeking a direction to BCCI to implement the suggestions of Lodha panel, including appointment of ex-home secretary G K Pillai as observer and sacking of all office bearers who are in violation of its recommendations.

CAB mentioned the matter before a bench comprising Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justice D Y Chandrachud, which perused the third status report submitted by the Justice R M Lodha Lodha committee, and said that the plea would come up for hearing on December 5 when the main matter would be heard.

"We will hear it on December 5," the bench said.

In its third status report submitted in the apex court on November 14, the Lodha panel has sought a direction to appoint Pillai as an observer to "guide" BCCI in administrative works including award of contracts, transparency norms and holding of future domestic, international and IPL matches.
