Board members who had attended the Special General Meeting (SGM) in New Delhi on June 22 have asked BCCI to bear the expenses of the meet. This, despite the fact that the general body meeting didn’t have the Committee of Administrators’ (CoA) approval.
The resolution taken at the SGM, a copy of which is with The Indian Express, however, mentioned that the cost of meeting be borne by the BCCI.
“Resolved that entire costs of this requisitioned General Body meeting for which 28 nominations were received will be borne by the BCCI. Resolved further to record with regret the fact that no officials were present nor that any official records available to assist the General Body as a result of directives issued,” the SGM resolution said.
The SGM also took the resolution that the Ranji Trophy would return to its erstwhile Elite and Plate groups format, with “all the teams presently playing Ranji Trophy shall play in the Elite Group” while the new teams like Bihar and the North-Eastern states “shall play in the Plate Group”.
