In a meeting that lasted 35 minutes, BCCI president Anurag Thakur was not pleased with the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) and Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) to postpone its elections soon after the Supreme Court verdict was announced.

A member who attended the meeting revealed Thakur, who joined via videoconferencing, expressed CAB and KSCA “should have gone ahead” with their pre-scheduled elections. However, CAB president Sourav Ganguly and KSCA secretary Brijesh Patel replied that they “sought legal opinion and went by it”.

Soon after the Supreme Court issued an order on July 19 directing BCCI and State associations to adopt administrative reforms within six months, the Lodha Committee, appointed to supervise its implementation, had clarified all elections held between the order and its implementation will be treated “null and void”.
