BCCI congratulates Srinivasan
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday congratulated N. Srinivasan on being unanimously elected as the first Chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC). "The BCCI wishes to congratulate Mr. N. Srinivasan on being unanimously elected as the first Chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC) for the period 2014-2016 of two years, post its historic restructuring," said BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel. "The restructuring of the ICC was an elaborate process undertaken by its Board and had been discussed in great detail at various levels within the ICC. The ICC, in the Annual Conference held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground earlier today, unanimously approved the restructuring of its corporate governance structure by amending the ICC's Memorandum and Articles of Association.
"The house thereafter unanimously elected Mr. N. Srinivasan as Chairman, who took charge on the successful conclusion of the Annual Conference," he said.
"It is a proud and historic moment for Indian Cricket, and on behalf of all the members of the BCCI, we wish him all the best," said Patel.
"As India takes the leadership position in World Cricket, the responsibility of guiding the game in these challenging times could not have found a better leader than Mr. Srinivasan.
"This establishes the important role that the BCCI will essay, as we take this responsibility to work with other members during these days of growth."
"It is also imperative that all the stakeholders of Indian Cricket stand united and support these endeavours, as we seek to play an important and definitive role in World Cricket," said Patel.
