Dalmiya likely to attend ICC meet

Jagmohan Dalmiya, the interim president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, is likely to attend the International Cricket Council’s board meeting as the representative of the Indian cricket board.

However, a meeting between Dalmiya, Srinivasan, BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel and Ravi Savant, BCCI treasuer, is scheduled at Chennai on Thursday, and a final call will be taken during that meeting.

It was a matter of debate whether Dalmiya or N Srinivasan, who stepped aside as the BCCI chief earlier this month, would attend the all-important two-day meeting, scheduled to take place in London after the Champions Trophy final on Sunday.
The 16-member meeting, beginning on Tuesday, would be attended by all the ICC big-wigs including its President Alan Issac and Dave Richardson, the Chief Executive Officer.

However, Srinivasan, who stepped aside temporarily as the BCCI supremo on June 3 following the arrest of Gurunath Meiyappan, his son-in-law and a top Chennai Super Kings official, for his alleged links with bookies during the IPL VI, will be present in London, and will be attending three less important meetings. The Tamil Nadu strong man is a part of ICC’s Finance and Commercial Affairs Committee, Nominations Committee and the HR and Remuneration Committee.

The highlight of the meeting would be the discussion on Decision Review System (DRS) and the possibility of making it mandatory for all the eight Test playing nations.

It’s learnt that Srinivasan has directed Dalmiya to stick to BCCI’s stance on the system. The Indian cricket board has taken a strong stance against the mandatory implementation of the system, maintaining that the use of DRS should be decided bilaterally.
