Armed with approval from the Supreme Court, BCCI joint secretary Amitabh Choudhary yesterday attended the Chief Executive Committee (CEC) meeting in Dubai even as Indian board will seek approval from ICC so that two people including Vikram Limaye can attend the ‘Board’ Meeting.
As per the ICC Constitution in a Board Meeting, two representatives from the same cricket board can be allowed wherein one is a participating ‘Director’ and the other as an ‘Observer’. The ‘Observer’ as per constitution will have no role to play and cannot participate in any of the discussions of the ‘Directors’ of the Board.
However, BCCI will need to apply and get approval of the ICC that in this meeting, they would be needing two representatives with Committee of Administrators (COA) member Vikram Limaye expected to be present. It will be interesting as to who will be second member among Amitabh, treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhary and CEO Johri.
“Since Limaye needs to get a hang of how things work in the ICC, he will be better off as an observer in this meeting with either treasurer Chaudhary or CEO Johri participating in the discussions. But it can be other way round also,” a former BCCI office-bearer with experience of attending ICC Meetings said.
