Former Test off spinner Shivlal Yadav, the Supreme Court-appointed interim president of BCCI for non-IPL related matters, is to chair the Emergent Working Committee meeting of the Board here on Sunday.
“I will be chairing the meeting,” Yadav told PTI on Friday when queried on the issue.
The BCCI website indicated former India captain Sunil Gavaskar, the Supreme Court-appointed interim president for IPL-related matters, as the chairman of the Working Committee.

“I don’t know whether he will be attending the meeting as he’s in Dubai overseeing the organisation of IPL,” said the Hyderabad-based Yadav when prodded further.
The future course of action of BCCI in the wake of whatever had transpired in the Supreme Court’s hearing on April 16 concerning allegations of spot fixing and betting in IPL, is the item on the agenda, 57-year-old Yadav said.
The apex court had turned down N Srinivasan’s fresh plea to return to the Board’s helm of affairs and said the Chennai business tycoon cannot head BCCI till he comes out clean in a probe conducted against him and 12 others, including India-capped cricketers, whose names have been mentioned by Justice Mudgal Committee report in the IPL corruption scandal.
The court said that it cannot “close its eyes” to the allegations made by its probe committee in the scandal and a probe must be conducted to clear the air as some prominent players were named in the report submitted in sealed envelope.
A bench of justices A K Patnaik and F M Ibrahim Kalifulla, however, had expressed reservations over a SIT or CBI probe, saying that institutional autonomy of the Board has to be maintained and a committee constituted by the BCCI to look into the issue would be preferred.
The WC meeting, to be held two days before the next hearing of the case in the apex court, has been convened at short notice following demand from some state units affiliated to the Board after the Supreme Court hearing.
Some Board bigwigs, including secretary Sanjay Patel, are currently in the UAE watching the first phase of IPL but are set to return in time to attend the crucial meeting.
