Meeting of minds

Outside of the stories Worma and Ruchir have linked to already, there's this one in the Telegraph, which makes the whole Pawar-Ganguly meeting an exercise in brinkmanship:
Sourav wasn’t available for a comment, but somebody close to the Gangulys suggested he would “promptly respond” if anybody sought his availability for an appointment with Pawar.
Former president and Pawar ally Inderjit Singh Bindra, though, is of the opinion Sourav should himself take it up from here.
“Mr Pawar has gone on record… Now, it’s for Sourav to make a call… I haven’t been acting as an emissary for either as I don’t set up meetings… In any case, both are adults and don’t need anybody as a go-between,” he remarked.
Speaking to The Telegraph from New Delhi, Bindra added: “Sourav’s contribution has been immense and, if he has something to say, he must communicate with Mr Pawar. However, there won’t be interference in matters of selection.”

So now it's who calls who, who blinks first?
