On Friday, former BCCI president N Srinivasan and erstwhile secretary Niranjan Shah were slammed notices by the Supreme Court for participating in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Annual General Meeting (AGM) as nominee of the state association. Srinivasan had also offended the court order by blocking reforms made by the Lodha panel to change the governance structure in BCCI. The next date of hearing in the matter is September 24.
As per reports, the Supreme Court has also sought recommendations from the Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar, Kabil Sibal and Tushar Mehta over the 2 vacant posts for Committee of Administrators (CoA).
Representing the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA), the former president, Sirnivasan had attended the Special General Meeting (SGM) on May 7 and June 26. Srinivasan was present at the meet after being disqualified under the 70-year of age cap administrators.
Erstwhile secretary Shah also crosses the age limits was included in committee for the study of Lodha reforms. As per sources, the reluctance to budge has resulted in the slamming of notices by the apex court.
Both Srinivasan & Shah are over 70 years old and thus are ineligible to represent their associations at BCCI.
However, coming out as good news for former president Anurag Thakur, the Supreme Court has dropped all the Perjury charges against the Himachal Pradesh cricket official and BJP MP after he had tendered an unconditional apology.
