The crucial meeting between the cricket board president N Srinivasan and Sahara Group chief Subrata Roy is likely to be held on February 12.
Sahara pulled the plug on BCCI on February 4 after the IPL governing council refused to meet some of its demands. Sahara declared the end of their India team sponsorship and said they will also pullout their IPL team, Pune Warriors.
“The meeting will most probably be held on 12th in Mumbai or Delhi. The details are still to be worked out. It will be between the three — BCCI president, IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla and Subrata Roy,” informed a source.
“The timing will be finalised after looking at the schedule of the three.”
Experts are optimistic as Sahara would also be keen to rescind their decision on not participating in the IPL as they stand to lose big money. They have al Sready paid the entire annual installment due to the BCCI and have also submitted the bank guarantee.
Over and above, they have promised to pay all their players their dues. They have invested more than R200 crore in the newly-built stadium at Pune for which they have 20-year title rights.
