Has an SGM been sought?

Mumbai: Some Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) members have demanded that a Special General Meeting (SGM) be called to take stock of the situation in the wake of Supreme Court’s order — it has replaced Narayanswamy Srinivasan by interim president Sunil Gavaskar to look after IPL VII affairs.

“Yes. It’s not a requisition meeting, but some of us have demanded that a SGM be convened to discuss the developments. I wrote to BCCI soon after the Court suggested the name of Gavaskar,” a top BCCI official of an affiliated unit said.

“But I am not sure whether the meeting can be convened or not because the matter is sub judice,” the official said.

Last week, a bench of Justices AK Patnaik and FMI Kalifulla replaced Srinivasan with Gavaskar as the interim president for managing the affairs of IPL VII, commencing in the UAE on April 16 until a decision is taken in IPL betting and spot-fixing case.

Functions of the president involving other matters of the Board would be discharged by vice-president Shivlal Yadav, the apex court ruled. (PTI)
