Kolkata: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) working committee meeting was postponed here on Friday after it decided to seek the Supreme Court’s opinion whether N. Srinivasan could attend the meeting of the governing body as the authored representative of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA). Srinivasan, the current International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman, was earlier asked by the Supreme Court to quit as BCCI president to facilitate investigations into the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL) betting and spot fixing scam.

His son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan has been convicted of wrongdoing in the IPL scam and has been banned from any cricketing activity for life. IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla said the working committee meeting would next be held only after obtaining the opinion of the Supreme Court in this regard. All other pending issues have been deferred to the board’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is likely to be held here on September 27. “Meeting was adjourned as there is a legal bar on Srinivasan. For that we have to seek clarification from the Supreme Court so that is why the meeting has been postponed. After we get the clarification next working committee meeting would be called,” Shukla told reporters here on Friday. Asked why Srinivasan participated in the meeting even after BCCI informed him about the legal bar, Shukla said he was unaware of any possible reason.

“The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Working Committee meeting was adjourned sine die after deciding to seek the opinion of the Hon’ble Supreme Court whether Mr. N. Srinivasan could attend the meetings of the BCCI as the authorised representative of Tamil Nadu Cricket Association,” BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur said in a statement on Friday. BCCI consulted their legal advisors before taking the decision. A Supreme Court order, issued on February this year, barred Srinivasan from taking part in any affairs of the board. Announcing the adjournment of the meeting, Assam Cricket Association secretary Bikash Barua said: “BCCI president adjourned the meeting after objections on the presence of Srinivasan”.”Srinivasan’s presence involved legal consequences,” added Barua.
