N Srinivasan to attend BCCI working committee meeting in Kolkata
According to a report in the Times of India, former BCCI president N Srinivasan will attend the board's working committee meeting in Kolkata on August 28.
New Delhi: According to a report in the Times of India, former BCCI president N Srinivasan will attend the board's working committee meeting in Kolkata on August 28.
Srinivasan will represent the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association at the meeting, which will also be attended by Mumbai Cricket Association chief Sharad Pawar.
The Tamil Nadu strongman has not participated in any BCCI meeting since February due to the impending verdict of the Lodha Committee.
BCCI's Annual General Meeting is expected to take place in September. At the time, the board will take a call on Srinivasan's re-nomination as ICC chairman from India.
The August 28 meeting in Kolkata is the last one before the AGM.
“Srinivasan didn't attend the earlier meetings because the Lodha committee report was pending. Now there are no legal bindings and most likely he will be there in Kolkata for the meeting,” a source was quoted as saying in the TOI report.
Though the new BCCI regime has shown no signs of pulling out support to Srinivasan at ICC, the veteran cricket administrator will want to make is present felt and gauge the mood of his former colleagues in Kolkata.
The working group of the board, in charge of studying the Lodha Committee verdict on 2013 IPL spot-fixing case, will submit its report at this meeting on August 28.
BCCI is expected to finalize their decision on the future of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals at this meeting.
