The BCCI has called an Emergent Working Committee Meeting on November 18 to discuss the scheduling of its Annual General Meeting which has been postponed by four weeks after President-in-exile N Srinivasan was named by the Supreme Court in the IPL spot-fixing scandal.

The AGM was originally scheduled for November 20 but has been postponed.

It is learnt that Srinivasan will attend the meeting as the chief of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) where the members of the all-powerful sub-committee of the Board will be apprised of the current situation in Chennai.

“The BCCI’s lawyers will apprise the WC members of the situation and the legal implications. Obviously, for BCCI to announce a fresh date for the AGM, one needs to call a Working Committee Meeting. The AGM is now likely to be held in the third week of December,” a BCCI official told PTI on Saturday.

Since the next hearing of the Supreme Court is on November 24, the BCCI decided to postpone its AGM — primarily because majority of the members want the Tamil Nadu strongman to be in the clear as he is vying for a second term as BCCI president.

On Friday, the Supreme Court named Srinivasan, his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra, cricket administrator Sundar Raman, who were all probed by the Justice Mudgal committee. The top court said had it had found “some misdemeanour by certain persons” and indicted them in the IPL6 scam.

It also ordered that supply of relevant portions of the report to the four so that they can file their objections within four days of receipt of the report.

“Certain findings recorded by the Committee are understood to have indicted some individuals against whose conduct investigation has been conducted. The report also deals with the conduct of the players which are for the present held back,” the bench said.

The court did not give details of the indictment or the misdemeanour or the persons who committed it.

      We thought that emergency means immediately and at once . If the meeting is after good 4 days then please do not call it as an emergency meeting. Guys want to buy time to prepare the script for ping resolutions of the meeting.
