After threatening to file a contempt petition in the Supreme Court, unrecognised Bihar Cricket Association secretary Aditya Verma wrote to ICC President Alan Isaac, pleading with him to stop sidelined BCCI chief N Srinivasan from attending the governing body’s Executive Board meeting in Dubai.
Quoting the Supreme Court order which has forced Srinivasan to step aside as BCCI President due to the ongoing investigations in the IPL betting scandal, Verma said the ICC should also shun the Chennai strong-man.
“I would request you to take cognisance of the Hon’ble Supreme Court’s order as well as the ICC Constitution and Code of Ethics and disallow Mr Srinivasan from participating in ICC meeting,” Verma said in his letter.

“I invite your attention to Clause 2.1 of ICC’s code of ethics which states that ‘Directors shall not engage in any conduct that in any way denigrates the ICC or harms its public image and clause 4.11 (F) of the ICC’s constitution, by which an ICC director can be removed as a member of the Executive Board on any one of the following grounds: “(1) he is guilty of any dishonesty, gross misconduct or wilful neglect of duty (whether by act or omission); or (2) in the reasonable opinion of the Executive Board, he commits (whether by act or omission) any act which brings or would tend to bring the Council into disrepute; or (3) he conducts himself in a manner materially adverse to the interests of the Council,” he added quoting the ICC code of ethics.
The ICC’s executive board meeting is currently underway in Dubai and will conclude on Thursday. Earlier, an unnamed BCCI official had told a website here that Srinivasan would be attending the meeting.
As per set norms, the BCCI president is inducted onto the ICC board as a Director and the secretary attends the ICC Chief Executives Committee meetings.
At every Annual General Meeting, it is the BCCI president who nominates the Board’s representative at ICC meetings, and at the last meeting held in Chennai on September 29, 2013, it was verbally decided that “Srinivasan will continue to be in the (ICC) executive board and Sanjay Patel (secretary) in the CEC.”
