BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary wrote to the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) on Thursday seeking permission to send a notice to the ICC, allaying fears that India would exercise the MPA even before the SGM on Sunday.
“I would once again like to reiterate that the notice only seeks to ask the ICC to remedy the breach that they have committed within a period of 30 days from today. This is not a decision of great magnitude. Not sending a notice will be of great magnitude since it has the possible effect of closing an option available to the BCCI within a given time frame,” says the letter.
“The draft notice doesn’t talk about any drastic step but merely appropriate consequences. The consequences can only be decided by the general body of the BCCI,” it states.
Board’s acting president CK Khanna confirmed the contents of the letter, saying it was the only option available to the Board secretary now. “Yes, we have India’s rights in mind, but we also want to take the feelings of all members into consideration,” he said.
