    BCCI calls SGM after Modi's objection

    Faced with opposition from former IPL chief Lalit Modi, the BCCI has convened a Special General Meeting to discuss the matter.

    Mumbai: Faced with opposition from Lalit Modi on the legality of the disciplinary committee, probing alleged irregularities committed by him, the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) has convened a Special General Meeting here on Saturday to discuss the matter.

    "The SGM will be held in Mumbai on December 11. It's with regard to the technical point raised by Lalit Modi's (former IPL chief) counsel. It's a minor thing," BCCI secretary N Srinivasan said on Monday.

    Modi's counsel Mehmood Abdi had pointed out last month that the three-member disciplinary panel did not have the BCCI General Body's mandate.

    Abdi had said on November 22 that the BCCI has forgotten to re-constitute the Committee for the year 2010-2011 at its Annual General Body Meeting held in September.

    "We are in a peculiar situation as of today. As per 1(Q) of BCCI by-laws various committees have to be freshly constituted. In its AGM, they did not form a fresh disciplinary committee," Abdi had said.

    "As for us, therefore, there is no disciplinary committee in existence as this panel does not enjoy the mandate of the GBM as required by BCCI constitution. There was no reconstitution, re-nomination or formation of the disciplinary body," he said.
