New Delhi: Jan 17, 2014
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has called an emergency Meeting of its members in Chennai on January 23 but the affiliated units are unaware about the agenda of the meeting.
Atleast two affiliated units confirmed that they have indeed received a circular from the BCCI headquarters about the Emergency meeting but are clueless about the agenda.
“Your guess is as good as mine. We have received a mail that there is an Emergent Meeting in Chennai on January 23. I will be leaving for Chennai a day before. As far as the agenda is concerned, the circular didn’t have any mention of it. We will get to know probably once we are on the floor,” a senior office bearer of one of the state units told PTI today.
There is a possibility that the meeting might have been called to discuss about the scheduling of the seventh edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) whose dates haven’t been announced the dates of the country’s general elections are still not out and there are chances that a few of the matches might be held in the neighbouring Sri Lanka.
