New Delhi: Supreme Court on Monday refused to advance the dates of the BCCI's Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Aditya Verma of Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) had filed a petition in the the apex court against cricket's governing body on grounds that it flouted the BCCI constitution by deferring the AGM by almost two months.
The CAB is also locked in a legal battle against N Srinivasan and the BCCI over corruption charges in the IPL 2013. It is being widely speculated that Srinivasan, who is now the President of the ICC, wants to carry on as the BCCI boss.
The all-powerful working committee meeting of the BCCI was held on September 26 to discuss about deferring the AGM. After this meeting in Chennai , the BCCI decided to have the AGM on November 20.
This was the second occasion in the history of Indian cricket that an AGM has been deferred.
