The BCCI Vice-President also cleared all the speculation on whether the meeting will take place as scheduled or not.
“As of now the decision is to go ahead with both the meetings on Aug 2. The IPL governing council needs to take cognisance of the 2-member probe panel report,” informed Shah.
BCCI president N Srinivasan’s decision to attend the meeting despite court order is not welcomed by many. Shah says no one can thrust his decision upon him and explains that the verdict can’t stop him.
“Whether it is morally right or wrong,one can’t thrust his decision upon Srinivasan. The court verdict doesn’t bar Srinivasan from taking charge of the BCCI affairs,said Shah.
On asked whether the BCCI consitution have any provision to stop Srinivasan,Shah points out that there is no such provision.
“BCCI constitution doesn’t have any provision to stop Srinivasan.”
