“The documentation work is going on and in a day or two the petitioners in all likelihood will approach the top court seeking directions for the conduct of the October 29 game,” MCA sources said Wednesday.
The MCA officials on Tuesday met a senior BCCI official to apprise him of certain difficulties including the MCA’s inability to operate its bank account and non-issuance of a tender notice for in-stadia advertising rights.
MCA officials are likely to meet the BCCI top brass again Thursday.
