Mumbai: Apr 19, 2014

Some board bigwigs, including secretary Sanjay Patel, are currently in the Unit Arab Emirates (UAE) watching the first phase of Indian Premier League (IPL) 7 but are set to return in time to attend the crucial meeting scheduled at its headquarter.

Shivlal Yadav, the former India Test off spinner who is the Supreme Court-appointed interim president of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for non-IPL related matters, would be chairing the meeting.

The future course of action of (BCCI in the wake of whatever had transpired in the Supreme Court hearing on April 16 concerning allegations of spot-fixing and betting in IPL, is the important item on agenda, 57-year-old Yadav had told PTI.

With another damning statement by its immediate past president Shashank Manohar that the board lacked leaders to take on Srinivasan, and another former president Jagmohan Dalmiya’s observation that the BCCI’s image has been sullied, indications are that a new panel satisfying the apex court would be formed to conduct a deeper probe into the Mudgal Committee’s findings.

The BCCI website indicated Sunil Gavaskar, the Supreme Court-appointed interim president for IPL-related matters, as the chairman of Working Committee, but Yadav is not certain whether his former cricket skipper would attend the meet.

“I don’t know whether he will be attending the meeting as he’s in Dubai overseeing the organisation of IPL,” said the Hyderabad-based Yadav.

Meanwhile, there have been demands from some quarters that Mahohar himself come back to head the board’s probe panel.

Aditya Verma, the unrecognised Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) chief who is the petitioner in the IPL case, has demanded that Manohar head the probe panel against the scam.

In a statement issued yesterday, Verma said the BCCI, which has called an emergent meeting of its all-powerful working committee, should hand over the investigation into the IPL corruption case to a panel headed by Manohar.

“Only Mr Manohar can clean the image of BCCI and IPL,” Verma said in his statement.

Those expected to attend the meeting are: Shivlal Yadav (Interim President), Sanjay Patel (Secretary), Anurag Thakur (Jt. Secretary), Anirudh Chaudhry (Treasurer), S P Bansal (Vice President, North), Chitrak Mitra (VP, East), Ravi Savant (VP, West), Rajeev Shukla (VP, Central), Representatives of Delhi & District Cricket Association, Tamil Nadu CA, Cricket Association of Bengal, Mumbai CA, Uttar Pradesh CA (all permanent Test centres), Haryana CA (North), Goa CA (South), National CC (East), The Cricket Club of India (West), Railway Sports Promotion Board (Central) (all by rotation), Karnataka State CA, Punjab CA, Gujarat CA, Vidarbha CA, and Hyderabad CA (Staged Test match in the last 2 years).
