IPL 2017: Ganguly Eligible But Not Going, PV Shetty to Attend Auctions

New Delhi: Cricket Association of Bengal president Sourav Ganguly along with Mumbai Cricket Association joint Secretary Dr PV Shetty are the two erstwhile IPL governing council members deemed eligible to attend Monday's auctions, but the former captain is not going to be present.

According to reliable sources, only Dr Shetty and Ganguly have been sent feelers by BCCI to attend the meeting.

"I am leaving for Bengaluru as CEO Rahul Johri asked me to attend the IPL auction as an erstwhile member. I don't know about others," Dr Shetty said.

Ganguly, who is an eligible office bearer, will not be attending it as a source, privy to the developments, said "IPL GC members hardly have any role to play in auctions".

The erstwhile IPL GC included all office bearers along with Rajeev Shukla, Sourav Ganguly, MP Pandove, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Shetty.

Anurag Thakur and Ajay Shirke are already ousted by Supreme Court.

As per Committee of Administrators (COA) diktat, vice president CK Khanna, treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhry and joint secretary Amitabh Chaudhary are not entitled to attend with their undertakings still pending in Supreme Court.

The tricky area was that COA has left it on other members of old GC to interpret and decide on their own whether they can attend or not.

Accordingly Pandove has decided against it as he has demitted office in Punjab Cricket Association (PCA).

"I am no longer eligible as I have demitted office. I am not attending IPL auction on Monday."
