The Supreme Court has barred former Board Control of Cricket in India(BCCI) president N. Srinivasan and ex-vice president Niranjan Shah from attending the Special General Body Meeting (SGM) of the Indian cricket board.
The BCCI SGM is scheduled for July 26. The Supreme Court had earlier issued notices to Srinivasan and Niranjan Shah, of the Saurashtra Cricket Association, for participating in the June 26 Special General Meeting of the BCCI.
The SC-appointed Committee of Administrators had accused Srinivasan and Shah of disrupting the Special General Meeting.
In April, the Supreme Court had barred Srinivasan from attending the International Cricket Committee(ICC) meeting.
India's top court declared today that only office bearers of state associations should be allowed to attend the SGM meeting on July 26.
The court also said it was considering recommending reducing the number of team selectors for the Indian cricket team from five to three.
The court also agreed to debate on plea for modification of one-state-one-vote rule of the BCCI.
Srinivasan was asked to step down as the president of BCCI three years ago by the Supreme Court after the Mudgal panel found the then BCCI chief's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan guilty in a betting and spot-fixing scam in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League.
