BCCI To Take Stock In Scandal With Emergent Working Committee Meeting On Sunday

Heeding to the demands of some affiliated State units, the Board of Control for Cricket in India "has decided to convene an Emergent Working Committee meeting" in Mumbai on Sunday to take stock of the developments relating to the case before the Supreme Court regarding the Indian Premier League spot-fixing and betting scandal, according to the PTI. The meeting comes in the wake of the Supreme Court making it clear Wednesday that former BCCI President N. Srinivasan cannot head the BCCI "till he comes out clean in a probe conducted against him and 12 others" in the IPL betting and spot fixing scandal" (PTI, 4/17). The PTI reported former President on Thursday rued that "there was no one in the Board to take on" who is facing the heat over the spot-fixing and betting scandal. Srinivasan, who had ignored repeated calls for his resignation, "has been stripped of his presidential powers by the Supreme till he is cleared of alleged wrongdoings in the scandal." Manohar: "The Board lacks leaders to take on Srinivasan who is shamelessly and stubbornly sticking to his chair" (PTI, 4/17).
