New Delhi: Apr 16, 2014

Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) called for an emergent working committee meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to discuss matters related to the Supreme Court case regarding the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing and betting scandal.

KK Sharma, Officiating Secretary, RCA, in a letter to BCCI Acting President, Shivlal Yadav, said that they are unaware of who is instructing the Counsel appearing for the Board in the Supreme Court.

“We have noticed the observations of the Supreme Court during the hearing. We are unaware as to who is instructing the counsel apprearing for the Board in the said matter. The issues have never been discussed at a Board Meeting and no Board Meeting has been convened in this regard,” Sharma said in his letter.

“We do not want that the stance taken by the Board should damage the reputation of the Board and Players and therefore we request you to convene an Emergent working committee meeting of the Board on 20.04.2014 at the Headquarters of the Board in Mumbai to discuss the matters pending before the Supreme Court as the said matter is now listed for 22.04.2014,” the letter said.

“We feel that the Board Counsel should be instructed about Board decision and should not take instructions from certain individuals.”

The Supreme Court said that N Srinivasan cannot head BCCI till he comes out clean in a probe conducted against him and 12 others, including India-capped cricketers, whose names have been mentioned by Justice Mudgal Committee report in the IPL betting and spot fixing scandal.

A bench of justices A K Patnaik and F M Ibrahim Kalifulla, however, expressed reservations over a SIT or CBI probe, saying that institutional autonomy of the Board has to be maintained and a committee constituted by the BCCI to look into the issue would be preferred.

Besides RCA, a few other state associations of the BCCI have also shot similar letters to the Board.

“At least five or six affiliated members of the BCCI have written letters to BCCI on similar lines,” a top BCCI official said.
