New Delhi: A day after Mukul Mudgal report on the IPL fixing scandal became public, the all powerful working committee of the BCCI will meet on Tuesday in Chennai, to discuss the Mudgal Committe report and could seek an explanation from IPL chief operating officer Sundar Raman.
Raman's role was spelt out by the Supreme Court-appointed Mudgal committee on Monday. Reports suggest that Tuesday's meeting will decide whether the BCCI will order for an internal probe on Raman or whether the board should wait for SC proceedings to conclude before taking any action, if required.
It will also decide on a new date for its upcoming Annual General Meeting, with the earlier scheduled AGM on November 20 being cancelled, the working committee members will decide upon a new date which is likely to be in the third week of December and also discuss the Mudgal Committee report that came out in the public domain.
BCCI President-in-exile N Srinivasan will be attending the meeting in capacity of being the president of TNCA.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will meet for the emergent working committee where they are expected to discuss the names that appeared in the Supreme Court panel report.
Another key issue that will be discussed is the case of Sunder Raman, IPL’s chief operation officer, who has been named in the Mudgal report of having been in touch with a contact of a bookie during the first season.
However, the official announcement will only come after the next Supreme Court hearing on November 24. "The BCCI would like to keep its end guarded. Any decision will be taken after SC verdict. However there is hardly any opposition. I guess there shouldn't be much opposition from the likes of Shashank Manohar, who at the maximum control four votes. There shouldn't be any problems for him to retain his presidential post," the official added.
