ICC agrees to consider allowing three nominees from BCCI, SC told

New Delhi, Feb 1: The Supreme Court on Wednesday was told that the Intertiol Cricket Council (ICC) has agreed to consider allowing three nominees from the Indian cricket board BCCI to participate in its crucial meeting at Dubai on February 2.

Amicus curiae Gopal Subramanium told the bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra that ICC was informed about the participation of three nominees — appointed by the apex court on January 30 — and all arrangements have been made for them.

Amicus Curiae told the court that an email was sent on Wednesday at 9 a.m. and ICC has said that it would consider our request.

Subramanium told the court that the BCCI communication was sent to ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar who is also a lawyer.

“It must be communicated to ICC that all the three enjoyed the same status,” Justice Misra said after Subramanium sought to put at rest the controversy that only Vikram Limay was being permitted to attend the ICC meeting and not the other two — Amitabh Choudhary and Anirudh Chaudhry.

The bench of Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M.Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y.Chandrachud had on January 30 appointed BCCI Joint Secretary Amitabh Choudhary, Treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry and Limaye to represent the BCCI at the three-day ICC meet in Dubai.

Limay is the maging director & CEO of Infrastructure Development Fince Company (IDFC).

The court hearing on the issue took place after senior counsel Kapil Sibal and Shyam Divan in a mentioning in the morning had told the court that only Limaye was being permitted to attend the meeting by the ICC. The senior counsel had appeared for the Tamil du Cricket Association (TNCA). (IANS)
