While all eyes will be on whether N Srinivasan resigns as board president or not in Sunday's special working committee meeting, the BCCI probe panel is also likely to be discussed at length.
The three-member panel was set up last week to investigate spot-fixing allegations and the involvement of Gurunath Meiyappan and franchises Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals.
However, there has been criticism, veiled and open, on the panel's composition. The committee was to include two members of the league's Operations Committee comprising five senior BCCI officials. However, the composition was tweaked to include two former Madras High Court judges. The only BCCI member in it, board secretary, Sanjay Jagdale, had resigned on Friday.
“Yes. The panel is likely to be reconstituted because, as of now, there is no BCCI member after the resignation of Jagdale,” BCCI joint secretary, Anurag Thakur, said. The meeting is also expected to see hard negotiations to ensure the resignations of BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale and treasurer Ajay Shirke are not accepted.
