When the working committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) conducts its emergent meeting in New Delhi on Monday (June 10) morning, Raj Kundra, co-owner of Rajasthan Royals, is likely to feature prominently in the discussions.
When the BCCI working committee last met, on June 2 in Chennai, the outcomes were dramatic. N Srinivasan, defiant in his stance that he would not resign as BCCI president, had to step aside from his position for the duration of the investigations into spot fixing in the Indian Premier League and alleged misdemeanours on the part of M Gurunath, Srinivasan's son-in-law and erstwhile Team Principal of Chennai Super Kings.
Jagmohan Dalmiya was appointed to "look into the day-to-day affairs of the BCCI" in Srinivasan's absence. And it was Dalmiya who called the latest meeting of the working committee in the wake of fresh developments in the ongoing scandal - Kundra's alleged confession to betting on IPL matches including those featuring the team he co-owns.
