The supreme court appointed Committee of Administrators (COA) is expected to have a meeting in Mumbai on Tuesday in order to discuss a bunch of issues, including future of the three current honorary office-bearers and women’s T20 exhibition matches during Indian Premier League (IPL).
There are certain chances that COA may think over next Status Report which they plan to submit to the Supreme Court. If COA happens to submit another Status Report, it will be their seventh.
The news taking round at the corridors of the BCCI cricket center is that the Vinod Rai led panel might recommend some severe action against the three principal office-bearers — acting president CK Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary and acting treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhary.
As quoted in PTI, an anonymous BCCI Official said, “There are chances that COA might recommend removal of the trio from their posts as all of them have cumulatively completed three years as office-bearers – Khanna as the vice-president and acting president; Aniruddh as treasurer and Amitabh as joint secretary and now acting secretary. The COA-office-bearers’ working relationship of late has hit the nadir with absolutely no mutual trust and respect between the two parties.”
CoA to meet with some other officials
It has also been learned that new GM of Cricket Operations Saba Karim, IPL COO Hemang Amin, and CFO Santosh Rangnekar have also been asked to accompany in the meeting to discuss other topics such as finance workshop for IPL team owners and other modalities.
Talking about the meeting, the official also said, “Women’s IPL as of now is a long shot but to test the waters, a few exhibition matches are being planned. IPL COO Amin and GM (CO) Karim have been summoned to discuss on these issues along with other operational details of IPL.”
