Some BCCI officials, when contacted, said they were not aware of any such development.<br /> <br /> The Tamil Nadu strongman has argued that he can be back at his job now that the two-member internal inquiry commission to probe allegations of Indian Premier League spot-fixing and betting had completed its report and found no evidence against Chennai Super Kings and his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan.<br /> <br /> The Bombay High Court, however, had declared the BCCI's two-member probe as "illegal and unconstitutional".<br /> <br /> Hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by the Cricket Association of Bihar, a division bench of justices SJ Vazifdar and MS Sonak declared the two-member BCCI probe panel "unconstitutional and illegal", a development which has put a spanner on Srinivasan's return to the BCCI top post.<br /> <br /> Unfazed by the Court order, Srinivasan had made it clear that he will attend the Working Committee here on August 2 which is expected to draw up the future course of action.<br /> <br /> The Bombay High Court order has created a lot of confusion within the Board and interim chief <a href="/tags/Jagmohan-Dalmiya/post" target="_blank">Jagmohan Dalmiya</a> has no clue yet as to who will chair the Working Committee meeting on August 2.<br /> <br /> "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 had said.
