New Delhi: Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president-in-exile N Srinivasan is set to discuss his future course of action with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) heavyweight and union finance minister Arun Jaitley once the embattled cricket administrator is back from the two-day International Cricket Council (ICC) Board Meeting in Dubai, scheduled to conclude on Friday.

A Supreme Court verdict has effectively barred Srinivasan from contesting the BCCI polls, slated within six weeks and Tamil Nadu strongman is now looking towards selling his prized Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK) within the stipulated time frame.

“Srinivasan will be back from Dubai after the board meet ends on January 29. So ideally, there is a chance of meeting Jaitley in Delhi on either January 30 or 31 or may be a tele-conference depending on the finance minister’s schedule,” a senior BCCI official, in the know of things, told PTI today.

“Since Srinivasan has always paid heed to Jaitley’s advice, it won’t be any different this time round. A clearer picture on BCCI logjam will only emerge after the Srinivasan-Jaitley discussion. At the end of the day, Jaitley controls eight votes (BJP ruled states and institutions) and that’s a good enough number in a total of 31 to have a decisive say in this regard,” the source said.
