Chennai: In a bid to resolve the 'Bindra syndrome', which cropped up as part of the vexed match-fixing issue, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will hold a special General Body Meeting (SGM) in Chennai on Friday to decide action on its controversial former president.The BCCI had earlier deferred action on former Board chief Inderjit Singh Bindra, the reigning monarch of the Punjab Cricket Association, at a working committee meeting held on January 25 in New Delhi.BCCI president A C Muthiah, himself caught up in the SPIC dis-investment imbroglio, had at that meeting concluded that a final action on Bindra would be decided at the Chennai special General Body meeting.Bindra and his association had attracted action after unleashing a tirade against some Board officials in the wake of the match-fixing scandal last year.Bindra and a PCA representative had appeared before the disciplinary committee recently. The General Body is scheduled to go through the finding of the Board's disciplinary Committee's findings on Bindra and the PCA and take a decision on it, Mr Muthiah had announced after the NewDelhi meeting.Friday's meeting is necessitated, as the working committee cannot act against the Board's administrators, but only against players. Among other important issues to be taken up at the meeting would be those pertaining to the affairs of the National Cricket Academy (NCA), especially the resignation of batting celebrity Sunil Gavaskar from it.The Board is yet to take a decision on Gavaskar's resignation. The BCCI had sanctioned a budget of Rs 1.74 crore for the NCA including that for holding a series of seminars and training sessions for coaches at different levels. The first such symposium was held in Bangalore recently.UNI
