DELHI: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is possible of setting up a Special General Meeting to fire their former chief, which will directly affect his existing position as ICC chairman, sources inform.

In order to finalize the decision of throwing out Srinivasas, an SGM needs to be called and BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya and Secretary Anurag Thakur are exploring the opportunity.

However, the duo is yet to freeze the date as of now as the members need to be given three weeks of notice period.

The information comes a day after an internal dispute between the ICC and BCCI took an ugly turn with Thakur launching a scathing attack on ICC Chairman N Srinivasan stating that he should actually share information on bookies with his own family members ‘whose involvement in betting has already been proven’.

According to the reports, SGM will be called on the final day of the Indian Premier League (IPL), May 24. Interestingly, expelled former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi was also suspended after the IPL 3 final in 2010.

On Sunday, ICC Chief Executive Dave Richardson had written a letter to the BCCI President over Thakur being photographed with a suspected bookie Karan Gilhotra. (Also Read: ‘Suspected bookie’ Karan Gilhotra also clicked with Yuvraj Singh, Sachin Tendulkar & Salman Khan)

If the situation of sacking Srinivasan arises, it would further jeopardize his position as the ICC Chairman as he no longer will remain a member of the BCCI.
