New Zealand confirmed it has been told by the BCCI that the series has not been cancelled and the visitors will go ahead with preparations for the third Test. We have the world's fastest growing league in IPL (Indian Premier League). Further, when Thakur was asked if India and Pakistan would be in the same group after BCCI's query, Thakur reverted back to his initial point and said "the question of India-Pakistan" will arise only if India plays the Champions Trophy. Who will make the payment? "If things are the way they are, the series (against New Zealand) could called off by today evening", a senior BCCI official told PTI.
He said that the BCCI would file a report to the Supreme Court for its next hearing due on 6 October. The amount of Rs 400 crore was disbursed to associations as routine expense not as what is being alleged by the Lodha Panel, he also said.
He added, "All that was probably needed would have been to bring in greater transparency in the financial transactions of the BCCI and the State associations".
However, with this clarification from Justice Lodha, the New Zealand tour which had been thrown in doubt, will continue. The letter, which was addressed to BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke, CEO Rahul Johri, treasurer Anirudh Choudhary and Rana Kapoor of Yes Bank, also talked about how the BCCI has openly breached the Supreme Court's order.
Shape up or ship out, the Supreme Court told the BCCI while directing it to abide by all the recommendations made by the panel.

Threat that evacuated Florida's Legoland likely a hoax
Winter Haven Police Department, along with the State Fire Marshal and the Polk County Sheriff's Office are searching the property. Legoland Florida said its No. 1 priority is the safety and security of its guests.
The BCCI, however, argued that state associations were dependant on the funds they received from the BCCI in order to organize matches and claimed that this could hinder their preparations for the upcoming games in the series against New Zealand.
BCCI further adopted a defiant attitude towards the reforms suggested by the Lodha Committee saying - "we can't give unconditional undertaking that we will follow Lodha panel directions". One can not, however, ignore the fact that pursuant to your email to us cc'd to them they took whatever decisions they had to.
The BCCI, in its response in the Supreme Court, has refuted allegations of non-compliance with Justice RM Lodha-led panel's recommendations, saying that "records of 40 mails" exchanged with Justice Lodha will be submitted before the apex court.
In its October 1 Special General Meeting, the BCCI had accepted numerous "significant recommendations" of the Lodha Committee, however, it excluded the important ones which have been bone of contention between the cricket body and the Lodha Panel.
