It's just because of the state polls, we have decided to reschedule by a day. So it will now be held on October 23 instead of October 22. Anything else that you read anywhere will be factually incorrect," CoA chief Rai told PTI on Tuesday. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/coa-chief-vinod-rai-wants-elections-deferred-but-diana-edulji-differs-895049">CoA chief Vinod Rai wants elections deferred but Diana Edulji differs</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Another CoA member <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/diana-edulji">Diana Edulji</a> said while she is "against any delay in conducting the BCCI elections", she understands that a day's extension is due to state polls. <p></p> <p></p>"As per the Supreme Court order passed on September 20, the state units may be granted a few days' grace but BCCI elections should be on time. We may defer it by a day due to assembly elections in Maharashtra on 21st," the former India women's captain said. <p></p> <p></p>Rai was happy with the outcome of the Supreme Court hearing on the Tuesday during which its petition seeking clarification on the permission granted to the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/tamil-nadu-cricket-association">Tamil Nadu Cricket Association</a> to hold elections, was admitted. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/coa-members-clutching-at-straws-to-extend-tenure-bcci-official-894790">CoA members clutching at straws to extend tenure: BCCI official</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>"Today, the petition came up for hearing. The BCCI counsel was there, TNCA counsel and amicus curiae P S Narsimha was there. I am happy with the outcome," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"The SC took cognisance of the fact that some state units are misinterpreting the order mischievously on 'disqualification being confined to office-bearers only'," said Rai. <p></p> <p></p>"Many felt that it meant that the 70-year clause (age cap), non-Indian passport holder clause have been done away with, which is not the case," the former CAG added.
