New Delhi :  The BCCI may find it tough to host the Annual General Meeting (AGM) as scheduled by the end of September after the Supreme Court Monday ignored pleas to reinstate N. Srinivasan as its president.

What has struck the BCCI hard is also the fact that the apex court gave two more months to the Mukul Mudgal Committee to submit the final report in the spot-fixing and betting scandal in the 2013 edition of the IPL that involved 13 people, including some prominent cricketers. The court has set Nov 10 as the next date of hearing.

A top BCCI official told IANS that it would be extremely difficult for the board to host the AGM as Srinivasan was seeking re-election for a third term. Srinivasan has been removed as the BCCI president by the Supreme Court pending investigating in the spot-fixing and the betting scandal in the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL).

“As of Monday we haven’t sent any notice for the working committee meeting (which would actually call the AGM). But it seems it would extremely tough for us to host the AGM this month,” the top official said.
