determined to bring the board to heel remains to be seen.Thakur has been elected only until September 2017 because that’s when Manohar’s term wouldhave ended He is the third president the board has had in the last 12 months with the lateJagmohan Dalmiya being the first The Lodha Committee has hung like the sword of Damocles overall their heads Manohar resigned and hopped across to the ICC rather face the prospect ofimplementing a report he did not agree with so Thakur would nowface the fire when the SC finally passes its order with the next hearing set for 28 June You’ve got to admire Thakur for still wanting to be in the hot seat in these uncertain times It would havebeen easy to let someone else take the risk while pulling the strings from behind the scences If hedoes manage to convince the court that the board’s objections are sound he will undoubtedly befeted by his peers However if the court sees fit to implement the entire report over the objectionsof the BCCI Thakur will be
