Internal conflict in the Indian Olympic Association reared its ugly head once again with a reported breakdown of relations between president N Ramachandran and secretary-general Rajeev Mehta. According to reports, a Special General Body Meeting is being planned to move a no-confidence motion against Ramachandran.
If reports are to be believed then the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to remove N Srinivasan as the chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC). The Indian cricket board is expected to conduct a Special General Meeting (SGM) on May 24 to take a decision on Srinivasan’s role.
Karan Gilhotra, against whom the ICC has issued an advisory to the BCCI Secretary asking him to stay away from suspected bookies, on Tuesday accused the global cricket body of trying to "malign" Anurag Thakur's image by using him.
Former BCCI president N Srinivasan today received another jolt as one of his closest confidant Sanjay Patel was removed from his primary membership by the Baroda Cricket Association on allegations of financial irregularities.
Tussle between newly-elected Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Anurag Thakur and International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman N Srinivasan is public now. Interestingly, the reason behind it is a suspected bookie Karan Gilhotra, who loves to socialise a lot with bureaucrats, Bollywood celebrities and even cricketers.
A day after the International Cricket Council (ICC) letter to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) about Anurag Thakur socializing with an alleged bookie was made public, the BJP MP lashed out at N Srinivasan in a public letter and asked BCCI to issue a list of suspected bookies.
The BCCI is unlikely to act on the ICC's letter to its President Jagmohan Dalmiya in which it is alleged that Board Secretary Anurag Thakur was photographed with a suspected bookie during a function in Chandigarh.
The BCCI on Sunday decided to seek a fresh legal opinion on the controversial "low" valuation of the IPL franchisee Chennai Super Kings when it demerged from its parent company India cements, headed by N Srinivasan.
It seems there is more trouble coming for the embattled owners of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) following reports of a possible undervaluation of the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise. According to reports, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has sought details about this controversy.
The BCCI's Working Committee during its meeting in Kolkata on April 26 will discuss about Chennai Super Kings being valued at a meagre Rs 5 lakh by its owners, which has been objected by some IPL Governing Council members.
Organisers of the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) may once again find themselves answering questions on conflict of interest. According to a leading daily, Neeraj Kumar, who was recently appointed as the chief advisor of Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU), has his daughter Ankita working with business entities promoted by IPL governing council chairman Rajeev Shukla’s wife Anurradha Prasad.
Najam Sethi, the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) executive committee, is likely to become the International Cricket Council's (ICC) interim president, filling the post left vacant by Mustafa Kamal's resignation earlier this month.
Refusing to comment on N Srinivasan-Mustafa Kamal feud, senior Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is hopeful that India will tour Bangladesh for a short Test and limited overs series as per bilateral FTP agreement after the completion of Indian Premier League.
The relationship between N Srinivasan and Mustafa Kamal might have been acrimonious in recent times but BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya on Saturday in a show of goodwill hosted a dinner party for the Bangladesh U-17 side that will play "Friendship Series' against CAB colts.
Mustafa Kamal was part of the presentation ceremony of the ICC Cricket World Cup but it was only after his allegations on the integrity of the match officials and his subsequent decision not to retract his comments which resulted in his removal from the presentation party.
