COA to states: We will seek SC directive on BCCI's ICC nominee
The Committee of Administrators on Thursday informed all state units that they will seek the Supreme Court's directive on BCCI's representative at ICC meetings and asked the members to keep that in mind before taking any decision at the Special General Meeting on April 9.
The COA's instruction before Sunday's SGM is an indication about what the members may face if they decide to appoint former BCCI president N Srinivasan as its representative at various ICC meetings. The letter was sent after COA learnt that all top office-bearers met Srinivasan at a Hyderabad hotel on Wednesday.
The letter stated:
"Members may kindly note that the Committee of Administrators has decided to seek appropriate directions from the Hon'ble Supreme Court on matters relating to eligibility for participating in any Special General Meeting or Annual General Meeting of the BCCI (both with reference to Members and their nominees/ representatives) as well as eligibility for being appointed to represent the BCCI at the ICC."
While the COA is eligible to attend the SGM but its head Vinod Rai will be travelling abroad and won't be present in the upcoming meeting.
