There was some controversy at the beginning of the day when the Rajasthan Cricket Association suspended went ahead to try to participate in the General meeting but they were not allowed to enter.
Dalmiya a former ICC Chief emerged as the leading candidate in the midst of negotiations on back of votes in the elections. According to reports Dalmiya was the strongest contender after obtaining the support of six units of the East zone. Apparently, he was the "consensus candidate" among rival factions by the BCCI President where he served a decade ago a report in the PTI he said.
The Supreme Court forbade Srinivasan is presented as a candidate to head of BCCI despite that can cast their vote as a result of his research on an array of betting scandal and surrounding the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The Court in January found Srinivasan guilty of a conflict of interest by having business dealings in the sport by owning an IPL franchise while it was also head of the BCCI. Srinivasan is the current ICC Chief Dalmiya served as President of the ICC during the three years 1997-2000.
Dalmiya was overthrown by rivals as BCCI Chief in 2005 after a more than decades of reign over the BCCI. The 74 year old is credited for helping to turn the game into a lucrative global sport. He brought twice the World Cup to the Indian subcontinent in 1987 and 1996. A BCCI orator declined to comment on the media reports while the own Dalmiya could not be contacted.
Dalmiya had attended the meeting of February 08 of the BCCI Working Committee. Speaking to the Indian Express one of the members of the CAB had said that it was monitoring the evolution of the Supreme Court on Srinivasan and prepared himself as the consensus candidate.
