The Board of Control for Cricket in India working committee in an emergent meeting in Chennai on Tuesday, has for the second time postponed its Annual General Meeting. Scheduled on November 20, the working committee has now decided to hold the AGM on December 17. This is a first in the history of the Board. According to the constitution, AGMs should be held every year and before September 30.
The BCCI's AGM has been affected by the Supreme Court hearing on the IPL scam. The next hearing is on November 24 when four "non-playing" members, served notices for their links with the scam, have to reply to a Special Supreme Court Bench. Two of the four are president-in-exile N. Srinivasan and IPL COO Sundar Raman. (Related read: Sundar Raman, the brain behind Srinivasan)
On charges against Srinivasan, the working committee felt "there is no taint on the conduct of Mr. N. Srinivasan and the allegations levelled against him by unscrupulous elements were baseless and were aimed at destabilizing the working of the BCCI."
