BCCI trying to convene meeting on Thursday

The BCCI is attempting to convene a meeting at the Cricket Centre in Mumbai on Thursday to identify three cricket administrators whose names can be submitted in a sealed cover to the Supreme Court on Friday.

The BCCI’s MOA and Rules and Regulations does not permit for a meeting to be convened in two days.

The BCCI is attempting to convene a meeting at the Cricket Centre in Mumbai on Thursday to identify three cricket administrators whose names can be submitted in a sealed cover to the Supreme Court on Friday. One of the the three would be nominated by the Court to attend the ICC Board meeting in Dubai in the first week of February.

The BCCI’s Memorandum of Association (MOA) and Rules and Regulations does not permit for a meeting to be convened in two days, but it seems the BCCI’s Jt. Secretary, Amitabh Chaudhary (acting Secretary because Ajay Shirke has been removed as Secretary by a Supreme Court order), is trying to find ways to convene a meeting.

Many officials have been disqualified by the January 2 order of the Supreme Court and majority of the States will have to make sure that only the correct representative is nominated to attend the meeting, should it take place.

The Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) has nominated the ousted BCCI secretary, Ajay Shirke — former MCA President — as its nominee for BCCI meetings. The MCA’s incumbent President is Abhay Apte.

The FAQ posted by the Lodha Committee stated: "In keeping with the spirit of the hon’ble Supreme Court’s judgment, a disqualified office bearer is no longer to be associated with cricket administration. He/She is disqualified from being a representative or nominee of the member association or the BCCI and cannot discharge any other role in or on behalf of the association or the BCCI. He/She cannot function within the association in any patron or advisory capacity nor be a member of a committee or council.’’
