Chennai (PTI): With a fortnight to go for the BCCI’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Chennai on September 29, under pressure BCCI president-in-exile N Srinivasan has already started working on his bid to retain the hot-seat for one more season. According to reliable sources in the BCCI, Srinivasan had called all the BCCI affiliated units from southern parts to assemble in Chennai to pledge their support ahead of the AGM, but the absence of Goa Cricket Association (GCA) and Andhra CA from the meeting has led to speculations about an election being on the cards.

“Yes, he did call the southern units for a meeting in Chennai. But I had some work over here and couldn’t attend the Chennai meeting,” Goa Cricket Association president Vinod Phadke told PTI over phone on Sunday when questioned about his absence from the meeting.
Asked whether Srinivasan wanted the southern units to pledge their support for him, Phadke said, “It was an internal meeting and I can’t tell you anything about it.” There are reports that a number of affiliated units out of 31 want former BCCI president and eminent Nagpur lawyer Shashank Manohar to contest the elections against Srinivasan and the buzz is that GCA will propose his name.
When queried on the matter, Phadke gave an open-ended reply that “We haven’t yet decided on that matter.” It is learnt that apart from TNCA, HCA, Kerala CA and KSCA representatives attended Sunday’s meeting. The last date for filing nominations is September 28, while any withdrawal can happen on the floor of the meeting.
