New Delhi: It seems embattled cricket administrator Narayanaswami Srinivasan's bid to reclaim his lost pride and position in Indian cricket and elsewhere is going to continue for an unforeseeable future.
According to a report in NDTV, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is ready to drag its former boss to court over the conflict of interest issue vis-a-vis the shareholding pattern in Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
This latest development may have resulted from Srinivasan's failed attempt to attend the all-important working committee meeting of the Indian cricket board last month. It's worth mentioning that the Chennai strongman was advised by the Supreme Court not to involve in matters to cricket, as long as he has conflict of interest.
The report claimed that, the BCCI, after seeking legal advice, has already drafted a petition to prove that the incumbent International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman still has conflict of interest.
After the infamous Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing scam, which exposed Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra, co-owners of CSK and Rajasthan Royals respectively, the Chennai-based franchise was de-merged from it's owners India Cements Limited (ICL), forming a new company called Chennai Super Kings Cricketers Limited.
The transfer of CSK to another wholly owned subsidiary of ICL seemed to have paved the way to exonerate Srinivasan from the conflict of interest charges, but the report claimed that the officials of Indian cricket board are still not convinced with the attempts, with many unclassified sub-plots involved in the actual hierarchy of ownership.
