After Sharad Pawar, who revealed that he will be attending Board of Control for Cricket in India s (BCCI) on August 28, N Srinivasan has shown intentions of being part of the meeting. According to latest media reports, Srinivasan will represent Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) in BCCI Working Committee meeting and Pawar will represent Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA). Srinivasan didn’t attend the earlier meetings because the Lodha committee report was pending. Now there are no legal bindings and most likely he will be there in Kolkata for the meeting, a source was quoted as saying by Times of India.

Earlier, it was reported that the current MCA President is eyeing a comeback with Jagmohan Dalmiya s health not being at best. Speaking about Pawar s decision to be part of the meeting, a top MCA official said, May be he wants to have first hand information about the exact situation in the board and study it himself. You never know what are his plans but he has told us that he will be wanting to attend the meeting.

However, another MCA official said that the decision of Pawar to be part of the BCCI meeting was in relation to the Indian board s headquarters being shifted out of Wankhede Stadium. The BCCI wants to shift its present office from the Wankhede complex. We want the BCCI office to stay in our complex, be it at the Wankhede or BKC complex. A deal has not yet been finalised, a MCA official said.

On the other hand, an official close to Srinivasan had said, If he is going there, it is good. We will welcome it.
