Can N Srinivasan attend board meetings? BCCI asks SC

New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday filed an application in the Supreme Court, seeking clarity on whether former president N Srinivasan could attend its meetings.

According to ANI, the application is likely to be listed for hearing next week in the SC

Last month, N Srinivasan landed at the board's working committee meeting in Kolkata.

Subsequently, the BCCI adjourned the meeting citing lack of legal clarity.

The opinion of the apex court is likely to have an impact on the Board's Annual General Meeting, which has to be conducted by September 30.

As per the BCCI constitution, a three-week notice is mandatory before the AGM can be convened.

Hence the probability of the all-important AGM being conducted on the originally scheduled date of September 27 is slim.

According to a report on NDTV, the ICC chairman turned up in Kolkata on August 28 to attend the meeting 'at his own risk'.

However, senior BCCI officials were not in favor of seeking the SC's opinion on the same.
