Minutes after the newly-elected office-bearers of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took charge, a few high-profile individuals were asked to vacate the meeting of the BCCI affiliates’ representatives here on Wednesday.

After the short General Body meeting, in which the Sourav Ganguly-led dispensation was handed over the reins, the BCCI members congregated for a meeting. The three erstwhile office-bearers — acting president C.K. Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary and treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry — were also invited along with the representatives of three non-compliant state associations.

Once they were invited, others like former BCCI and ICC president N. Srinivasan, former BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah, former vice-presidents Rajeev Shukla (also a former IPL chairman) and Ravi Savant, former legal committee member Abhay Apte, also entered the enclosure.

Once it was known that none of them were among the designated representatives of their respective state associations, Khanna requested them to leave the conference room. “Yes, I announced that uninvited guests should vacate the room,” Khanna confirmed to Sportstar.
