BCCI Officials Can Call SGM, Shukla To Chair IPL GC Meet, Says Vinod Rai

New Delhi: Board of Control for Cricket in India's officials do not need to to take approval from the Committee of Administrators (COA) for calling a special general body meeting (SGM), but the COA needs to be kept in the loop for everything, this is the significant statement which has come from Vinod Rai, who is leading the four member COA appointed by the Supreme Court of India to oversee the functioning of the BCCI until a fresh elected body is in place.

Speaking to the media during an event Rai made it clear that BCCI officials can call an SGM by just keeping the COA in the loop, but no decision can be taken on any matter without the approval of the COA.

He further mentioned that the date for the next BCCI SGM is not fixed yet and said that the COA will step in only if decisions taken by the BCCI officials are in violation of the Supreme Court orders.

Rai also cleared the air about who is the man in charge of running the Indian Premier League, mentioning categorically that IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla will be the man who will chair the governing council meet.

Questions were raised about Shukla's role after it was decided that the Committee of Administrators (COA) led by Vinod Rai would monitor the proceedings of the all-important IPL Governing Council meeting on Thursday.

This will also be the first IPL GC meeting under the COA where a host of decisions are expected to be taken.

The BCCI had floated tenders for an event management group and probably the name will be announced. All the existing contracts with various vendors and the new deals inked would also be checked.

"The circumstances have changed. So everything needs to happen under COA unless Mr (Vinod) Rai himself instructs Mr (Rajeev) Shukla to chair the meeting," a source said.

Sourav Ganguly is also coming to attend the meeting as he is a part of the IPL Governing Council.
