BCCI working committee to meet on Sunday

Mumbai, Oct 17 (IANS) Following the appointment of Shashank Manohar as its new president, the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) working committee has called a meeting here on Sunday to discuss several issues regarding the game in the country.

It has been learnt that the fate of the two suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will be the primary point of discussion, alongside PepsiCo’s move to withdraw as the lead sponsor of the IPL and fixing the date of the next annual general meeting of the BCCI.

Sunday’s meeting is seen as vital for the two IPL franchises, who were earlier suspended by the Supreme Court following Justice R.M. Lodha committee’s report on the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal.

The working committee will be chaired by newly-appointed BCCI president Manohar, who took over the reins for the second time after the post became vacant due to the demise of Jagmohan Dalmiya.

The IPL working group under chief Rajiv Shukla has called for fresh bidding to make the lucrative tournament an eight-team event, keeping in mind the demands from the broadcasters and sponsors.

The date of the next annual general meeting of the board is also likely to be finalised in Sunday’s meeting.

Soon after his appointment, Manohar made it clear that the board will work in a transparent manner for the betterment of the game in the country.
