BCCI calls for SGM on Dec 9
The much-awaited Special General Meeting (SGM) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will be held on December 9. The meeting was earlier reported to have been slotted for December 1 but Mirror learns that the SGM has been fixed for December 9. It will be held in Delhi, the home turf of BCCI acting president CK Khanna. Khanna is understood to have sent out notices to the state units yesterday. The SGM had to be called after the chief of Committee of Administrators (CoA) Vinod Rai asked Khanna to call the meeting to get few urgent matters passed in the general body.
As reported by this paper already, ICC schedule, Kochi settlement and Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) matter will have to be passed at the SGM. Trouble seems to be brewing between secretary Amitabh Choudhary and treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry, who has questioned some of the decisions of the secretary and sought the schedule of world cricket. Speaking to reporters at the Eden yesterday, the BCCI acting secretary said the plan will be sent in due course. He, however, refused to join issues with his colleague.
Meanwhile, the chief executives of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), who are currently meeting in Singapore, seem to be exploring Dubai as a venue for the next year’s Asia Cup. One proposal on the table is to hold the tournament in Dubai and Abu Dhabi if not in Sharjah. There is also some confusion over participation of Pakistan in the tournament as they are scheduled to play Australia in September 2018, the proposed window for the tournament. Informal discussions have revealed to the ACC members that Pakistan may not be free during that period and in such a case, the event may be staged in India itself. As per rotation, it is the turn of the BCCI to host it.
