BCCI Officials To Avoid Confrontation With CoA

While trying to avoid confrontation with the Committee of Administrators (CoA), the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s office-bearers still want to have their way in the Special General Meeting.The CoA had issued a series of dos and don’ts for the conduct of the BCCI’s SGM. The CoA wants the meeting to fall within the framework of the Lodha Committee’s reforms.

The board’s office-bearers want to stick to the SGM’s original agenda – to pick the board’s representative for the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) meet. However, they want to abide by the law laid down by the Supreme Court and the CoA. “We are not going getting into any confrontation with the CoA. We respect their sentiments and will go strictly by the law unlike the previous regime.

It is learnt that former BCCI president N Srinivasan’s name would be discussed in SGM and the old guard won’t mind going through the rigmarole to get his name cleared for the ICC meet. Sources said there could be voices within the BCCI state units who would oppose Srinivasan’s name for representation in ICC.

If that happens, this would be for the first time in the history of BCCI that there would be an opposition to the name of a representative.If at all Srinivasan’s name gets the SGM’s nod, it would be in direct conflict with CoA’s instruction of picking a name which is in violation of the Lodha committee reforms.
