Srini yet to decide on attending ICC meet: TNCA
Chennai: Embattled BCCI President N Srinivasan, who stepped aside after the IPL spot-fixing scandal, has not yet made up his mind on attending the ICC Annual Conference in London and will decide on it closer to the date of sub-committee meetings.
The conference started on Tuesday and will continue till June 29. There is intense speculation on whether conference would be attended by Srinivasan, who stepped aside as Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President after his son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings Team Principal Gurunath Meiyappan was arrested for alleged betting.
"Mr Srinivasan has not yet decided about his going to London for the ICC meeting. The meeting (that he is supposed to attend) is on June 29 and he will decide closer to the date whether he would go or not," South Indian state of Tamil Nadu Cricket Association Secretary Kashi Viswanathan, who is also a close aide of Srinivasan, told PTI.
Srinivasan, who was unanimously elected the president of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) at its 83rd Annual General Meeting on Sunday, is expected to attend the sub-committee meetings during the ICC Annual Conference.
If he travels to London, Srinivasan will attend three ICC sub-committee meetings, including the finance and commercial affairs committee of which he is a member.
Jagmohan Dalmiya, who was made incharge of the BCCI's day-to-day affairs after Srinivasan stepped aside, will represent India in the ICC board meeting.
BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel will attend the chief executives' meeting, while Indian Premier League (IPL) CEO Sundar Raman will attend the working group meeting of the CEOs.
