Thiruvananthapuram:The stand-off between the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was resolved today with Board president Ranbir Singh Mahendra saying that the "matter is closed."

Addressing reporters after the two-day working committee meeting of the Board, Mahendra said TNCA president N Srinivasan and former BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya presented their views over the controversy generated by the letters written by Srinivasan alleging irregularities in the TV rights issues.

"After the discussions, Srinivasan has withdrawn the letters and the allegations against Dalmiya and the matter is closed," he said.

Mahendra also said that TNCA has admitted to file affidavits in favour of the apex body in the cases filed by Sir Thyagaraya Cricket Club and Bharti Cricket Club against BCCI.

On the TV rights issue, the BCCI president said the Board would constitute a committee before calling for tenders.

"With regards to TV rights the working committee has taken a decision that a committee will be appointed for this purpose and tenders will be invited.

"The process will be completed and after approval from the committee and then the working committee, the final decision will be taken," he said.
