Mumbai : Heeding to the demands of some affiliated state units, the BCCI has decided to convene an Emergent Working Committee meeting on April 20 to take stock of the developments relating to the case before the Supreme Court regarding IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.

“BCCI WC has been convened on April 20 in Mumbai,” BCCI’s vice-president Ravi Savant told PTI.

Jagmohan Dalmiya expressed happiness at the decision of BCCI to convene an emergent working committee meeting. “I am happy that better sense has prevailed and an emergent meeting of the working committee has been convened by the BCCI. There are some issues of serious nature that need to be discussed at the earliest.
