The Committee of Administrators (CoA) has given the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) the go-ahead to hold their Special General Meeting, directing officials that it should be attended only by the office-bearers of state associations.

The CoA has also asked the acting president CK Khanna to direct that the proposed SGM be convened at a notice of at least 10 days. In their response to acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary’s email seeking guidance on the SGM, the CoA said that according to the Supreme Court order, any person who is disqualified from being an office-bearer of a member association cannot be the association’s nominee or representative to a general meeting of the BCCI.
