Srinivasan may quit tomorrow at Working Committee meeting
New Delhi: An emergency meeting of the Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) will be held in Chennai on Sunday in which beleaguered President Srinivasan may announce his resignation from the post after he has been virtually isolated by his team in the Board.
As pressure mounted on him to quit in the wake of the IPL spot-fixing scandal and the arrest of his son-in-law on betting charges, the BCCI has advanced the Working Committee meeting which Srinivasan had planned to convene next Saturday.
"An emergent Working Committee meeting will be held in Chennai at 11 am", BCCI Game Development Manager Ratnakar Shetty said in an announcement that came hours after Vice-President Arun Jaitley and Joint Secretary Anurag Thakur told reportes to wait for a "significant" development in a day.
Sources in the Board said Srinivasan may announce his decision to quit the post and he has discussed this with some of the officials.
In an indication that the resignation might come tomorrow, IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla said "some announcement is likely to be made. Wait for a day".
The meeting of the all-powerful Working Committee may decide on the interim chief for the Board till a new President is elected.
