N Srinivasan All Set To Hold Meeting With Ousted Officials After CoA’s Nine-Year Tenure Cap Decision
Rocked by the Committee of Administrators’ decision to implement a cumulative nine-year tenure period for the office bearers, former BCCI chief N Srinivasan has called for a meeting of all the former officials and state association administrators.
As per reports in The Indian Express, the meeting, which is likely to be held on Sunday in Delhi, is expected to be attended by state association officials and former BCCI officials, who are now rendered powerless after the Supreme Court’s damning verdict earlier this year.
The cricket administrators across the country have been left in utter confusion after the latest verdict as they feel the Supreme Court had made it clear in its last amended order that the officials can have a cumulative 18-year term in power- 9 in the BCCI and as many years in the state associations. Actually, there has been confusion over the specifics of the nine-year tenure cap since the release of the Lodha Committee recommendations in January 2016. According to the Supreme Court’s July 18 verdict, the officials were granted the permission to serve nine years each at both the BCCI and state level. The order will be a huge setback for those big administrators, who were hoping to enter the BCCI offices after nine years of service at the state bodies.
And with confusion still prevailing, former officials and some state association biggies are going to have a meeting with lawyer Kapil Sibal to chalk their next course of action.
A member who will attend the Sunday meeting has said the former officials could move to the Supreme Court if required.
“So how can COA change SC order?. We will approach Supreme Court on this regard once again if needed,” the member was quoted as saying by the Indian Express.
