Will N Srinivasan be officially cleared at BCCI meet today?
Amid reports that the two-member internal probe panel of the Indian cricket board has cleared its chief N Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan of betting charges, the BCCI mandarins meet here today to discuss a host of issues, with the schedule for the upcoming tour to South Africa likely to come under the scanner.
The BCCI bosses, however, categorically claimed they were yet to receive the report of the commission comprising retired judges T Jayaram Chouta and R Balasubramanian formed in May to probe the allegations of betting in the IPL against Chennai Super Kings Chief Executive Officer Meiyappan, who was arrested by the Mumbai police May 24.
The schedule of the trip to South Africa beginning November 21 has generated much interest in the wake of the appointment of ex ICC Chief Executive Officer Haroon Lorgat as Cricket South Africa CEO.
The working committee is also expected to finalise its decision on following up the report submitted by its Anti-Corruption and Security unit chief Ravi Sawani regarding the spot fixing scandal.
