New Delhi: The Working Committee meeting of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday will decide the date of its much-delayed Annual General Meeting, which has been deferred till now because of the IPL spot-fixing case.
The Supreme Court on January 22 had instructed the Indian cricket board to hold its AGM-cum-elections within six weeks, and also to decide its date before February 12.
It will be interesting to see whether the sidelined BCCI president N Srinivasan attends the working committee meeting or not. In capacity of being the president of Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA), he is technically allowed to attend the meeting but after the stinging verdict from the apex court, the Tamil Nadu strongman might not attend it in order to avoid further complications.
The meeting also assumes a lot of significance as the members will get a fair idea about the future of Srinivasan, who has been clearly told by the SC that he won't be able to stand for presidential elections unless he completely dissociates himself with the India Cements-owned Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Just ahead of the Working Committee meet, N Srinivasan on Saturday took an ‘informal’ meeting in Chennai with his supporters, which was essentially a show of strength. And it can be safely assumed that he still continues to enjoy strong support from the board members.
