Under-pressure from at least eight affiliated units to 'reveal' how the Board of Control for Cricket in India is handling the 2013 Indian Premier League spot-fixing and betting scandal in Supreme Court, the Board has convened an emergency working committee meeting in Mumbai on Sunday.

Angry members, spearheaded by the Rajasthan Cricket Association, had written to BCCI's interim president Shivlal Yadav on Wednesday to summon a meeting after a Supreme Court bench directed the Board's counsel to explain how the BCCI will investigate the scam that broke in May last year. The BCCI's lawyers will have to come up with an answer when the court hears the case again on April 22.

At least eight BCCI units, including one from South Zone and two each from East and West, are reporrtedly unhappy that the BCCI has showed no transparency in sharing details with members on how the case is being handled.

By an interim order on March 28, the Supreme Court had removed Srinivasan as Board president and appointed Yadav and former Test captain Sunil Gavaskar as interim BCCI heads till a fair probe on the IPL corruption case was done. On Wednesday, the court once again rejected Srinivasan's appeal to reinstate him as BCCI chief and asked the Board to say how it will investigate the IPL scandal.
