The Supreme Court on Thursday gave the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Lalit Modi six days to decide on the composition of the disciplinary committee probing alleged financial lapses by the former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner.
The BCCI and Modi would reverse back to the apex court on Wednesday to inform if they have succeeded in hammering a compromise.
If not, then the apex court would resume hearing on the matter.
The BCCI on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that it was not possible to reconstitute its panel.
The BCCI said this in response to a query by the apex court bench of Justice J M Panchal and Justice Gyan Sudha Misra in connection with Modi's plea.
The board said it could not reconstitute the disciplinary committee inquiring into the charges against Modi at this "late" stage.
Pointing out that the board had already diluted the composition of the committee after BCCI president Shashank Manohar withdrew from it, the court wondered why it could not reconstitute the panel by changing another member.
