New Delhi: Days after the Supreme Court expressed its displeasure over Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president in-exile N. Srinivasan's chairing of recent working committee meeting in Chennai, Srini apologised to the apex court and said he would not chair the meeting.
Srinivasan tendered unconditional apology in SC for presiding over BCCI working committee meeting on February 8. On Friday, Srinivasan's counsel Kapil Sibal told SC that he will not preside over the BCCI Annual General Meeting to be held on March 2.
Earlier, concerned with the turn of events, the apex court bench of Justices T.S. Thakur and Ibrahim Kalifulla said that Srinivasan should not have presided over cricket board's working committee meeting on February 8 as he was already disqualified from holding any post in the board.
During the first day's hearing, the bench also concluded that the court has certainly found that there is a conflict of interest by his presence during the board meeting.
Before adjourning the hearing to February 27, the bench asked for an unconditional apology and explanation from the Tamil Nadu strong-man.
