It is highly unlikely that there will be any elections and Rupa will be the first woman president of a BCCI affiliated unit.

It must be mentioned that her husband Gurunath Meiyappan, a former Team Principal of Chennai Super Kings, has been banned for life by the BCCI for his role in betting during the 2013 spot-fixing scandal.

During the meeting, the date for the elections will be decided, and it has been advanced in order to hold the Annual General Meeting (AGM) by 28 September as per Committee of Administrators (CoA) guidelines.

It is expected that the names of candidates in fray for various positions will be known after the meeting.

The Supreme Court on Friday allowed the TNCA to hold elections to elect office-bearers but said the results will be subject to its decision.

A bench comprising Justices S A Bobde and L Nageswara Rao said the state cricket associations can go ahead with the elections but will not declare the results. It will be subject to the order of this court and legal remedies will be available to parties.
