Senior officials of the Premier and First Division clubs will meet Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Major General Sina Ibn Jamali on January 10 to discuss the current crisis over this year's league.

Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM) chairman Gazi Ashraf Hossain Lipu said yesterday that the meeting would create an opportunity for the clubs officials to let the BCB president know about their problems of running the show.

"Presidents and general secretaries of all Premier and First Division clubs will meet the president and it would be an open discussion. I think it will help us find a solution about this year's competition," said Lipu, also chairman of the cricket operations committee of the BCB.

All the activities regarding this year's league have been suspended as the High Court ordered a two-month stay on the upcoming Premier Division Cricket League 2007-08 that was scheduled to begin this month.

A Division Bench comprising Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain and Justice Farid Ahmed issued the stay order following a writ petition filed by Brothers Union Club.

Brothers Union went to court after they were relegated along with Indira Road Krira Chakra after they had failed to turn up for their scheduled Relegation League match at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur in October last year. City Club were the other team of the league who survived.
