N Srinivasan and Niranjan Shah
Disqualified BCCI administrators N Srinivasan and Niranjan Shah were yesterday restrained from attending the cricket board's Special General body Meeting (SGM)âÂÂon July 26 by Supreme Court which directed that only office bearers of state cricket associations can take part in it.
The apex court's order assumes importance as for the last few months, both Srinivasan and Shah were participating in the board's meeting as the nominees of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) and Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA)âÂÂdespite being disqualified.
A three-judge bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra also indicated that it was willing to deliberate upon afresh the issues like membership of associations, number of selectors and number of votes.
The bench, also comprising justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, asked BCCI and state associations concerned to deliberate on implementation of Justice RM Lodha committee recommendations, which were accepted by the apex court, "as far as practicable" in the July 26 SGM. "The meeting shall be attended only by the office bearers of the associations, not by nominees or representatives. All concerned shall implement the recomme-ndations of the Justice Lodha Committee report as far as practicable, barring the issues which have been raised pertaining to membership, number of members of the selection committee, concept of associate membership, etc," the bench said. The bench has fixed the matter for hearing on August 18.
