New Delhi: In what will be good news for supporters of N. Srinivasan, the Supreme Court on Monday refused to advance the dates of the Board of Control for Cricket in India's Annual General meeting. The court decision came after hearing a petition filed by Cricket Association of Bihar saying the BCCI flouted its constitution by deferring the AGM by almost two months.

The Bihar association is fighting a legal battle with BCCI and its president N. Srinivasan over corruption in Indian Premier League 2013. Srinivasan, who is now ICC's first chairman, is eyeing another term as BCCI president. If all goes as per the script, Srinivasan will be nominated by East Zone and should win comfortably. ( Recap: Don't mix my business with cricket, says Srinivasan)

After a working committee meeting in Chennai on September 26, the BCCI decided to hold the AGM on November 20. According to the BCCI constitution Rule No. 16, "the Annual General Meeting of the Board shall be held every year, but not later than 30th September at such place and time the president may fix." This is the second time in the history of the BCCI that the AGM has been deferred.
