Not 24 hours left for the much awaited first Test match between India and England but nothing seems to right within the the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The BCCI has moved to the supreme court saying that the match at Rajkot may cancel if the funds are not released.

The move has come after the board barred from releasing funds to state associations without prior approval from the Lodha committee.

However, the panel has said it is contempt of court by not obeying the apex court's direction s to clean the board.

Earlier, BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke on Saturday filed their respective affidavits to the Justice RM Lodha Committee as per the directive of the Supreme Court issued on October 21.

In his seven-page affidavit, BCCI president Thakur maintained his stand about the inability of the members to accept some of the Lodha Panel's recommendations in totality and also sought directions under these circumstances.

Earlier, the BCCI has asked the England board to bear its expenses as MoU was not inked between both the boards.
