BCCI postpones AGM again after SC revelation
New Delhi: The Indian cricket board Friday postponed by another four weeks its Nov 20 Annual General Meeting (AGM) when its new chief is to be elected. The decision comes in the wake of the Supreme Court deciding to make public names of four individuals who are under the scanner of the Mudgal Committee probing allegations of spot fixing and betting in the 2013 edition of the IPL.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had earlier postponed its AGM and annual elections after the Supreme Court on Sep 1 ignored pleas to reinstate sidelined board chief N. Srinivasan in his post.
The postponement of the AGM -- originally slated for Sep 30 -- to Nov 20 was deemed by petitioner Cricket Association of Bihar as a violation of the BCCI constitution and "a step aimed at largely helping Srinivasan to get re-elected for a third term in office".
The apex court Friday recorded the statement by BCCI counsel C.A. Sundaram that the meeting of the BCCI annual general body, which was scheduled to be held Nov 20, will now take place after four weeks.
