New Delhi: N Srinivasan will chair a crucial meeting of the BCCI Working Committee scheduled to be held here on Friday.
As per reports, the BCCI Working Committee meet will begin around 11.30am this morning.
Sanjay Patel, secretary at the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on Thursday informed that Srinivasan will head the working committee on Friday.
"Srinivasan is the BCCI chief and he has already started working. There is no confusion as to who will chair Friday`s working committee meeting," said Patel.
Srinivasan forcefully stepped aside as president of the BCCI two months ago when his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, the owner of the Chennai Super Kings, got arrested due his alleged involvement in spot-fixing and betting in the IPL matches.
Asked whether a fresh probe panel will be formed by the BCCI as demanded by one of the senior vice-presidents Niranjan Shah, Patel gave a terse reply, "I have got nothing to do with it. Ask Niranjan Shah about it! Any decision regarding this can only be taken by the Working Committee and IPL Governing Council. If somebody is talking, it is not well."
If reports are to be believed then several North Zone members may boycott the working committee meeting of the BCCI today.
Many members in the North Zone are of the view that N Srinivasan should not return as the president of the BCCI and are ready to skip the working committee meeting to show their displeasure over it.
There are reports that there is also a rift between the interim BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya and Srinivasan.
