Calcutta/Mumbai: Ravi Savant, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) treasurer, on Wednesday, said Board president Narayanswamy Srinivasan is likely to attend the working committee meeting, which will be held in Calcutta, on Sunday.
“I think he (Srinivasan) should be attending. If he is attending, he will chair (the meeting),” Savant told reporters on the sidelines of a Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) function to felicitate umpires.
The previous working committee couldn’t meet formally, on August 2, as secretary Sanjay Patel omitted the word ‘emergent’ in his notice to the committee members. The word was necessary as the last meeting had been held on July 28.
An ‘emergent’ working committee meeting may be convened at a notice of three days. A regular meeting requires a notice period of 14 days.
With the meeting being adjourned, Jagmohan Dalmiya was asked to continue as the interim chief. On the same day, Srinivasan had recused himself from attending the IPL governing council meeting on grounds that the BCCI president is an ex-officio member.
Now, with the Supreme Court hearing on BCCI’s appeal against the Bombay High Court verdict, which declared the Board’s IPL probe panel “illegal and unconstitutional”, coming up on August 29, its outcome is expected to be deliberated by the committee.
The date and venue of the AGM, scheduled next month, would also be decided among other things.
