CSK, Kundra will be hot topics at BCCI's Capital meeting
The future of Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be discussed at length when the working committee of the Indian cricket board meets here today.
Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra will also be widely discussed in the meeting. Kundra faces suspension from his IPL franchise in the wake of Delhi Police claims that the NRI businessman placed regular bets during the Twenty20 tournament.
The revelation led the crisis-ridden Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to call its working committee meeting which will begin at 11 am. The board, however, is unlikely to take any action against Kundra until its probe panel puts out a report.
The fact that Delhi Police have not arrested him yet is likely to work in his favour at the emergency meet called by BCCI interim president Jagmohan Dalmiya.
Rajasthan Royals, who were already in the spotlight with the arrest of their three cricketers on spot fixing charges, have made it clear that Kundra will have to forfeit his shares if he is proved guilty.
The other major talking point at the BCCI meeting will of course be about Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals and their role in the spot fixing scandal.
BCCI president N Srinivsan had to “step aside” following his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan’s arrest by Mumbai police on May 24. He is out on bail now.
