The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to call an emergency meeting next week to discuss the muddle regarding India’s tour of Bangladesh in June. This follows Bangladesh’s Mustafa Kamal quitting the ICC and blaming its chairman N Srinivasan for his exit. 

A top BCCI official was quoted as saying Kamal’s diatribe against Srinivasan is perhaps forcing the Indian board to meet and discuss the situation. Kamal quit as the ICC president on April 1st protesting against not being allowed to present the World Cup trophy on March 29th to the Australian team, terming this a “flagrant violation” of the world body’s constitution.

“They may try to push BCCI to cancel the June tour of Bangladesh because Srinivasan is BCCI’s representative in ICC and Kamal’s tirade against him, they may argue, is now a national issue,” the BCCI official said.

“But Srinivasan has large number of opponents in the BCCI who will stoutly oppose such plans, arguing that Kamal’s tirade against Srinivasan is a personal issue and BCCI cannot afford to create a diplomatic row.” 

Newly appointed BCCI Chief Jagmohan Dalmiya has refused to comment on the Kamal issue. The official, however, said Srinivasan’s supporters in the BCCI are trying to force the emergency meeting.
