New Delhi: BCCI's President-in-exile N Srinivasan is all set to contest the election to retain his post.
Srinivasan on Thursday said he will seek re-election as president of the BCCI. Srinivasan is in exile due to court cases against him and his Indian Premier League team Chennai Super Kings, is finishing a two-year term and can seek a year`s extension at the BCCI annual general meeting in Chennai on September 29.
Srinivasan is expecting a good support from South Zone members of BCCI.
Srini will need 16 votes out of 31 to secure his post.
Earlier, Srinivasan chaired the disciplinary committee meeting few days back that imposed life bans on tainted cricketers S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan for their role in the spot-fixing scandal during IPL-VI.
Srini was forced to step-aside after his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan was arrested by the Mumbai Police on allegations of betting on CSK matches in the sixth edition of IPL.
