Lalit Modi's fate would be on top of the agenda when the BCCI's general body meets in Mumbai on Saturday for a special sitting which is expected to take the first step towards the suspended IPL Commissioner's eventual expulsion from the Board.
Though BCCI secretary N Srinivasan has said that the Special General Meeting has been convened to rubber stamp his decision of referring the charges against Modi to the Disciplinary Committee, it's the third item on the agenda of the SGM that has raised some questions.
The three-point agenda of the meeting to be held at 1500 hours at the Board headquarters here will "ratify the action of Srinivasan in referring the charges against Modi issued in the three show cause notices served to him to the Disciplinary Committee for further proceedings.
It would also "reconstitute the disciplinary panel for holding enquiry against Modi following the recusal of one of its members – BCCI chief Shashank Manohar – from it following a request to this effect by the suspended IPL chief.
The third on the list is "to discuss and take any other appropriate decisions with regard to the conduct of the IPL and matters arising thereof."
Srinivasan, in an interview to a TV channel, had made it clear that no final decision will be taken on Modi's case by the SGM, which will only decide whether to refer the suspended IPL Commissioner's fate to the Disciplinary Committee.
