New Delhi: It's still not clear whether incumbent Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) president N Srinivasan will attend the BCCI's working committee meeting to be held on Friday in Kolkata.
According to a report published in the DNA, a section in the BCCI is keen on disallowing former board president Srinivasan from attending the meet, where the committee will discuss the fate of Indian Premier league (IPL) franchises, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR), who have been suspended for two years. The cricket board will also try to chalk out a road map for the troubled League.
"The BCCI should deny entry to Srinivasan. After all, the case is pending in the Supreme Court. His conflict of interest has been established. The BCCI has every right to stop him from attending Friday's meeting. They must ask the TNCA to send another representative," a senior official belonging to the Sharad Pawar faction told DNA on Wednesday.
In a way the owner of India Cements, Srini can attend the meeting in his capacity as president of TNCA. However, on the other, the biggest apprehension in front of Srinivasan would be the order of Supreme Court, according to which he has been categorically told to "keep away" from all board activities till the Justice RM Lodha Committee completes the work assigned to it.
