Chennai: N Srinivasan is all set to file his nomination as the BCCI president for a third term on Saturday after a Supreme Court bench comprising Justice AK Patnaik and Jagdish Singh Khehar on Friday said that he can attend and contest the BCCI election.
If elected, he will be allowed to take charge only after clearing his name from the Indian Premier League (IPL) corruption cases.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) AGM scheduled to take place on September 29 also got a go-ahead from the SC on Friday.
Earlier, Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) had filed a plea to stop a desperate Srinivasan from contesting the Board elections.
Srini is on the verge to complete his two year tenure by the end of this month. But it seems as if he will certainly retain his position for the next a year or so.
If the sources are to be believed then Srini has got the support of all six South Zone affiliates - Tamil Nadu (his home state), Karnataka, Kerala, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh and Goa.
