The BCCI yesterday postponed its Special General Meeting after former president N Srinivasan and his faction raised objections against it on technical grounds. Six state associations wrote to the BCCI’s acting president CK Khanna, saying that protocol had not been followed while convening the meeting scheduled yesterday.

The units were, Srinivasan’s Tamil Nadu CA, “disqualified” official Niranjan Shah’s Saurashtra Cricket Association, treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry’s Haryana CA, TC Matthew’s Kerala CA, Goa CA and Karnataka State CA.

Acting president Khanna then wrote to acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary, asking him to take appropriate steps. All these associations had objected to the fact that a minimum 10-day notice period was necessary to convene a Special General Meeting of the BCCI as per the constitution (Article 17 sub clause (iii)).

Majority of the state associations were in favour of calling the SGM in order to break the impasse and move on by implementing all but three Lodha Committee reforms as recommended by the Special Committee of the BCCI.
