Ratnakar Shetty said on Friday, that president-in-exile N Srinivasan recused himself from the BCCI's Working Committee meeting that was supposed to be held on August 2.

The under-fire BCCI called off its Working Committee meeting in New Delhi, fearing legal trouble in the wake of an adverse Bombay High Court order.

Srinivasan, who was expected to resume charge as BCCI President at the meeting, will have to wait on the sidelines for a longer period with Jagmohan Dalmiya continuing as the interim chief.

The BCCI decided to appeal in the Supreme Court against the Bombay High Court order, which had declared the Board's Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing probe as "illegal and unconstitutional".

Before the working committee meeting was called off, the IPL's Governing Council decided to reconstitute its ethics commission, where two positions were lying vacant following resignations of Ajay Shirke (Treasurer) and Sanjay Jagdale (Honorary Secretary)
