New Delhi: The BCCI has challenged a trial court’s order in Delhi High Court that bars it from holding its Special General Meeting (SGM) on Wednesday.

The board had organised a meeting on September 25 to discuss the report submitted by its disciplinary committee on former India Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi for his alleged involvement in financial irregularities during his tenure.

The court will hear BCCI’s plea that says the trial court has no jurisdiction to pass such an order considering the meeting is scheduled to take place in Chennai.

A Delhi Court recently restrained the BCCI to hold its SGM to decide the fate of Modi scheduled for Wednesday.
