The uncertainty over the Board of Control for Cricket in India's Annual General Meeting later this month seems to be "man-made". The Board will be majorly flouting its own constitution if the all-important meeting is not held by September 30.

According to legal experts, the presence of N. Srinivasan, who has been stood down by the Supreme Court as BCCI president in the wake of the 2013 IPL betting and fixing scandal, is not mandatory to hold a meeting. Key members in the BCCI executive committee seems to be misinterpreting the Supreme Court order and the Board's Memorandum and rules and regulation in force since September 15, 2012.

Reportedly, worried Srinivasan loyalists are informally meeting in Chennai on Sunday to explore ways to put off the AGM and ensure that Srinivasan can contest a third term. Srinivasan's one-year extension is coming to an end this month but he is eligible for another term if he is nominated by East Zone, whose turn it is to elect the BCCI president.
