Chennai:A local cricket club today served a legal notice on International Cricket Council chief Ehsan Mani, threatening to initiate contempt of court proceedings against him if former BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya was permitted to attend tomorrow's ICC meeting at Delhi on behalf of the Indian cricket board.

Sir Theagaraya Recreation Club said in its notice that the VI Assistant City Civil Court, in passing an interim injunction on January 25 last on a suit filed by the club, had restrained the BCCI from authorising Dalmia to attend the meeting of the ICC or any such conference on its behalf.

The notice, a copy of which was released here tonight, said the order of the court was still in subsistence and a civil revision petition filed by the BCCI against the injunction was pending before Madras High Court for disposal. Yesterday, the high court had adjourned the matter to March 23 for final disposal.

Claiming that Dalmia was trying to attend tomorrow's meeting on the pretext that he was entitled to continue to act as the representative of the BCCI as nobody was appointed in his place at the adjourned 75th annual general meeting of the board in September last, the notice contended that Dalmiya's term as the representative had ended on September 29, 2004, and he had not been reappointed.
