Stage set for N Srinivasan to return as BCCI President

Zee Media Bureau

Chennai: It seems that all the controversies that currently surround BCCI’s President-in-exile N Srinivasan are nothing but hokum. The inevitability of him returning as the chief of world’s richest cricket board during BCCI’s AGM on Sunday indicates so.

On Sunday, in spite of Supreme Court’s observations, Srinivasan will be re-elected as BCCI’s President for a third year and the ‘Cement Baron’ has chosen his ‘own team’ for another tenure at Indian cricket board’s helm of affairs.

However, Srini cannot discharge his duties even after the election as the Supreme Court is yet to give its verdict on a petition filed against his candidature by Cricket Association of Bihar secretary Aditya Verma.

It has also been reported that Jagmohan Dalmiya might again be given the charge till the decision is made but it seems highly unlikely that Srinivasan will be making this move.

Srinivasan was the lone candidate whose name was put forward for the post of president during nominations.

All six southern associations (Tamil Nadu CA, Andhra CA, Karnataka State CA, Kerala CA, Hyderabad CA and GOA CA) have backed Srinivasan to the hilt and thus ruling out the possibility of any contest.
