Srinivasan to attend ICC meeting?
Controversial industrialist-cricket administrator N Srinivasan, who has been sidelined from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) affairs following the Supreme Court's order, is all set to attend the ICC executive board meeting in Dubai, media reports said.
According to reports, he will attend the meeting, which will be held from Apr 9 and 10, as a BCCI 'representative'.
A senior BCCI official confirmed to ESPNcricinfo that Srinivasan "will attend the ICC Board meeting".
The Supreme Court last month ordered Srinivasan to resign from his post to ensure a fair probe in the IPL spot-fixing case.
A two-member Supreme Court bench comprising Justice AK Patnaik and Justice Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifulla on Tuesday heard the inquiry reports submitted by the Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee on the scam.
The Indian Premier League Probe Committee, headed by Justice (Retd) Mukul Mudgal, who had been appointed by the Supreme Court to look into IPL 6 scam, submitted its report on Feb 10 where it found Srinivasan's son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team's Gurunath Meiyappan guilty of match-fixing.
The 170-page report, filed in the Supreme Court said Meiyappan had fixed and put bets on IPL matches.
The Supreme Court also installed former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar as the interim chief of the BCCI replacing Srinivasan for the Indian Premier League (IPL) seventh edition affairs.
While Gavaskar now heads the affairs of the cash rich cricket league that is mired in controversy over spot fixing and betting, the non-IPL chief of BCCI is former Indian cricketer Shivlal Yadav.
