BCCI Joint Secretary Anurag Thakur said on Friday that he has requested Board president N Srinivasan and honorary secretary Sanjay Jagdale to convene a Special General Meeting (SGM) to allow members to speak on the spot-fixing scandal that has rocked Indian cricket.

"The image of the sport has taken a beating but it is our responsibility now to correct that", Mr Thakur said, adding that he expected other members to speak their minds, as he himself would do. Mr Thakur also represents the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association on the Board (which has 31 full members), which is one of the 9 bodies who are reportedly anti-Srinivasan.
