Former BCCI and ICC boss N Srinivasan’s presence through Skype at the BCCI Special General Meeting raised a few eyebrows as it appeared.
N Srinivasan was even rapped on the knuckles by the Apex Court as he hung on to the post of BCCI president in the aftermath of 2013 IPL spot-fixing.
A consensus among board members, in favour of Shashank Manohar taking over as ICC chief, is expected to be reached at their AGM on Nov 9.
N Srinivasan and Anurag Thakur fight is now out in the open.
A bench headed by Justice T S Thakur said that it will hear the application in the near future. It, however, did not fix a date for hearing.
The BCCI cancelled its working committee meeting, scheduled on August 28 to discuss the fate of CSK and RR in IPL.
The meeting was postponed as the members argued over the presence of N Srinivasan.
Early last year, the then BCCI president Srinivasan intervened to get commentators a favourable contract.
Srinivasan’s name is mentioned as the representative of BCCI in the ICC Board Meeting from June 24-26.
Incumbent Secretary Kashi Viswanathan also held on to his position for another term.
The BCCI has come down hard on the officials with links to former president N Srinivasan or his company India Cements.
There must be a reason why an almost 80 year old man and a 70 year old man, want to cling on to their seats.
Speaking to Sandeep Dwivedi, Anurag Thakur chalks out the challenges and his plans for the future.
It’s been speculated in media that the board spent $900,000 on the same but the official rubbished that claim.
