'We don't react to media reports'

July 29, 2009 13:52 IST

An emergency meeting of the Cricket Board's all-powerful Working Committee has been convened here on August 2 but the agenda for the same is not yet known.

"(BCCI Secretary) N Srinivasan is out of the country at present and will inform the members about the reasons for convening the meeting," BCCI's Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty told PTI when asked about the agenda.

Shetty also refused to respond to comments attributed to Yusuf Pathan who was reportedly critical yesterday over the omission of his brother Irfan from the 30-strong ICC Champions Trophy list of players.

"We don't react to media reports", Shetty said.

Yusuf Pathan reportedly said on the sidelines of a function on Tuesday in Ahmedabad that Irfan was not out of the Champions Trophy probables list due to non-performance.

"Irfan's performance was always up to the mark. He has not been left out because of his performance. Everybody has seen what is happening. It is for you (the media) to react and comment on what is happening," Yusuf was reported to have retorted angrily to a query on the matter.

Baroda's Yusuf and Saurashtra all rounder Ravindra Jadeja joined the Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) and were inducted into RIL as executive (sport) by Group President (Corporate Affairs), Parimal Nathwani, at a ceremony in Ahmedabad.
