SC issues notice against BCCI secretary Srinivasan

Zeecric Bureau

New Delhi: BCCI top boss and owner of IPL Chennai franchise, N Srinivasan landed in serious trouble after Supreme Court of India issued a fresh notice against him in a case filed by former board president AC Muthiah.

N Srinivsan is currently in the IPL Governing Council and is widely considered as the man responsible for Lalit Modi’s suspension from the cash-rich league.

Minutes after the Apex court gave a fresh trouble for Srinivasan, suspended IPL Chairman Lalit Modi told a news channel that he was seriously contemplating to take a position on the whole issue.

“I am looking at the SC notice, and the points raised by Muthiah definitely have its own merits. It needs to be looked into, at first glance there is an issue out here,” Modi told a news channel.

The Apex court’s notice against Srinivasan comes on a petition filed by AC Muthiah in which he had countered that no administration of BCCI should have direct or indirect commercial interest in the IPL. Muthiah said that an independent probe over the financial irregularities of the IPL should be conducted.

Muthiah had also challenged BCCI`s permission to grant Secretary N Srinivasan to own Chennai Super Kings -- an IPL team.

Earlier, holding the Indian Cricket Board responsible for all the mess that IPL is in today, AC Muthiah alleged that the board had amended rules to suit the needs of certain officials.
