New Delhi: Under-fire BCCI president N Srinivasan on Saturday put an end to all speculations by making his presence felt at the International Cricket Council annual conference in London by attending one of the sub-committee meetings via video-link.
"Yes, Srinivasan attended the Finance and Commercial Affairs Meeting of the ICC via video-conference. He took active part in that meeting as it is one of the most important as well as powerful sub-committee of the ICC. Srinivasan attended the meeting by virtue of being a member on individual capacity," a senior BCCI official told PTI on condition of anonymity.
Thus both interim in-charge Jagmohan Dalmiya and current president Srinivasan attended the meet albeit in different capacities. While Dalmiya attended the Annual Conference and Development Board meetings, Sanjay Patel attended the CEO`s meeting.
Srinivasan`s attendance also made it clear that he is in no mood to relent and is waiting for the two-man committee probe to clear him of any wrongdoing after which he will take the control back from Dalmiya.
While the BCCI had made it clear that interim in-charge Dalmiya is supposed to attend the Annual Conference and secretary Sanjay Patel would attend the CEO`s meeting, there was no clarity till the last day regarding Srinivasan`s attendance at the global conference.
Srinivasan is a member of three ICC sub-committees. Apart from F&CA committee, the other two committees that he is part of are the Nominating committee and the committee of Human Rights and Remunerations.
