Ousted Board of Control for Cricket in India president N Srinivasan, on Sunday, attended the meeting of various state associations with the Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators, reported PTI.

Srinivasan, who represented Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, walked into the BCCI headquarters here this morning at around 10.45 am and came out of the meeting by 12.30 pm. However, he did not speak to the waiting media. Former BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah also attended the meeting along with Srinivasan. Former India skipper and Cricket Association of Bengal Sourav Ganguly came for the meeting in the afternoon.

On Saturday, CoA head Vinod Rai had clarified that it was not their mandate to decided the eligibility or ineligibility of the people attending the meeting. TNCA’s Executive Committee nominated Srinivasan to be the association’s representative at the meet.

Kumble-Kohli row likely to be discussed

Anil Kumble’s resignation as chief coach may come up for discussion at the SGM, where the primary agenda will be ‘One State One Vote’ and the reinstatement of a five-member selection committee.

The Kumble issue is not on the agenda for the SGM but it is likely to be raised by members. “The members may ask acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary and CEO Rahul Johri as to what was the situation that led to Anil Kumble stepping down from the chief coach’s post,” a state unit official was quoted as saying.

“It’s not always required to be on the agenda. Some issues can be raised on floor with permission of the chair,” he said. The state units met the CoA in two batches. The issues pertaining to the Lodha Committee reforms was once again discussed.

It is learnt that all state units are on the same page on the ‘One State One Vote’ issue. The body is likely to decide that while new members must be included, units like Mumbai, Vidarbha, Saurashtra, Baroda should not lose their voting rights.

The other issues include reinstatement of a five-member selection committee as it will be impossible for three to track domestic matches. Jatin Paranjpe and Gagan Khoda were removed from the panel for not having played Test Cricket.

The ‘three-year cooling off period’ is another issue. Current CAB president Ganguly may have to go in for a “cooling off”, if it is implemented.

For a few members like N Srinivasan and secretary Niranjan Shah, the age cap of 70 years is an issue. In fact, Srinivasan was present during CoA’s meeting with the first batch.

“Vinod Rai told us that the General Body is the supreme body in the BCCI and he is hopeful that right steps will be taken at the SGM. Mr Srinivasan was also present but he only listened to the discussions,” the official said. “Srinivasan said that if he has to put across his viewpoint, he will do so at an appropriate forum,” the official said.
