Kolkata: Jul 30, 2013

Outgoing interim chief of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Jagmohan Dalmiya admitted that Bombay High Court’s verdict of terming the two-member probe panel “illegal and unconstitutional” has put them in an “embarrassing position.”

Questioned on the impending crisis that has rocked the cricket board, a perturbed Dalmiya said, “I do not know how big is the crisis is but I can say that it has put us in an embarrassing position. I must have received at least 50 to 80 calls since morning. But I want to say that I am equally in dark.”

About the Bombay High Court order, Dalmiya said that he has not received the order.

“Nothing has been communicated to us in the last 24 hours. I have just read it in the media reports. My knowledge is as good as yours. I do not know where to go from here, we have to wait and see.”

Quizzed on the next course of action, he replied,”It is a million dollar question.”

He was equally non-committal when asked about who will chair the working committee meeting in Delhi on August 2 as N Srinivasan has declared that he will be attending the meeting.

“Who will chair August 2 meeting? I myself do not know where is the chair… Let me first understand where do I stand… I do not have any information officially. This however does not mean there is some difference with the BCCI,” Dalmiya gave a half-hearted reply.
