In order to select its new president post the sudden death of Jagmohan Dalmiya, the Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) is likely to call its Special General Meeting (SGM) in Mumbai on Sunday, according to reports.
Sharp and smart chessboard moves have started in the BCCI to fill the slot left vacant by the death of board president Jagmohan Dalmiya, with the names of Sharad Pawar, Rajeev Shukla and Amitabh Choudhary doing the rounds as possible claimants.
If reports are to be believed then the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to remove N Srinivasan as the chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC). The Indian cricket board is expected to conduct a Special General Meeting (SGM) on May 24 to take a decision on Srinivasan’s role.
A pariah in Indian cricket for three years now, former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi was today slapped with a life ban by the BCCI after its disciplinary committee found him guilty on eight charges of "indiscipline and misconduct".
Astute, ruthlessly ambitious, and the one who aimed for the sky, Lalit Modi`s eventful stint in Indian cricket firmament, with its innumerable ups and downs, truly defines the age-old saying `life is a roller-coaster`.
Banned for life from India`s cricket establishment, a beleaguered former IPL boss Lalit Modi is not ready to throw in the towel yet and declared that he would indeed have the "last call" in this entire issue.
