The much-awaited Special General Meeting (SGM) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is expected to be held this weekend or next Monday. Notices have not yet been sent to the state associations but BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur is understood to have telephonically informed the members of the state units.
The notices are likely to be sent in a day or two.The venue of the meeting has not yet been finalised but informed sources have indicated that it will be Mumbai. “We have been told to report in Mumbai this weekend. We understand that the date of the meeting has not been finalised but it is like ly to be on Sunday or next Monday,“ said an official of a state association who received a call from Thakur on Monday evening.
The secrecy surrounding the meeting is because a section of the board feels that the N Srinivasan group, which has been marginalised in the succession struggle for the BCCI presidency, could stall the SGM on technical grounds by going to the court.
The SGM will have one-point agendato elect the new president.
