The Supreme Court on Monday restrained former BCCI president N Srinivasan and cricket administrator Niranjan Shah from attending the Special General Meeting (SGM) of the BCCI scheduled to be held on July 26.

A bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra said that the SGM shall be attended only by the office bearers of the state cricket associations.

The bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, said that all the associations shall implement the recommendations of Justice R M Lodha committee as far as "practicable barring issues raised pertaining to membership, selectors, a number of votes" which will be debated before the apex court.

The bench fixed the matter for further hearing on August 18 and said it would consider two issues -- the implementation of the Lodha panel recommendations as far as practicable by the state associations as well as the names to fill up the vacancies in the apex court-appointed committee of administrators.
