New Delhi, Apr 24 (ANI): The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) on Saturday rejected Indian Premier League (IPL) Commissioner Lalit Modi's plea to defer the Governing Council meeting by five days, saying it will go ahead as per schedule.
The BCCI has already informed Modi that it would not change the date of the meeting as allegations of financial irregularities and the entire controversies related to IPL were far too serious to differ the meeting any further.
According to sources, the BCCI would go ahead with the scheduled meeting even if Modi decides to skip it.
On Friday, Modi had sought five days time to prepare himself for the Governing Council meeting, which is expected to take a hardstand and even press for his removal.
"I need to prepare the documents to support my replies to all the questions... I have worked for you (BCCI) for five long years without taking any money... consider giving me just five days for the documents," Modi had said.
The "Anti-Modi" mood within the BCCI is quite clear with the entire top brass and most of the Governing Council member boycotting the award function in Mumbai last night.
Meanwhile, reportedly, the BCCI officials are also planning to skip the IPL final on Sunday. (ANI)
