With the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) set to hold its annual general meeting here on September 29, president N Srinivasan has organised a trip to Mahabalipuram for some of the members.

These members — sources pointed the number to around 12 — were here for Wednesday’s special general meeting where former IPL chief Lalit Modi was expelled for life. With the AGM taking place soon after that meeting, many of them have decided against going back to their respective cities.

“Some of them are in Mahabalipuram. What’s the point in going back home and then returning after just a couple of days? That’s why these members have decided to go on a holiday. Some of them visited Tirupathi,” said a member, who has not returned to his city.

While the move to shift a sizable number of members/voters to a secluded location away from the eyes of others can be viewed as a move on the part of Srinivasan to protect votes, he has no need to do so. With the South Zone members promising allegiance to him, there is very little chance that anybody will get even a chance to contest against him.
