The Supreme Court has ordered BCCI chief in exile, N Srinivasan, that he can only be eligible for elections for the post of president of BCCI if he disowns Chennai Super Kings Team of IPL. In other words, he cannot enjoy the post of BCCI president and a Team franchise owner at the same time as both the positions create conflict of interests. The Supreme Court also sited that although there are no proofs but there is a strong probability that Srinivasan was involved in IPL corruption.
In a major set back to ICC Chairman , N Srinivasan (and suspended BCCI chairman), the Supreme Court wants Chennai Super Kings Team to be disqualified. After the Mudgal report which found Meiyappan , son-in-law of N Srinivasan owner of Team CSK being involved in betting.
The Court has also asked to conduct fresh elections for BCCI excluding officials with tainted image in IPL spot-fixing Scam. Srinivasan, on the other hand, wants a clean chit from the court to contest for the post of BCCI president yet again.
N Srinivasan has been re-elected as the ‘unopposed’ BCCI President.He was the only one to file nomination for the post and hence the announcement was just a formality.Although as per the Supreme Court , the undisputed BCCI king cannot discharge his duties as a President until the final verdict in Jagan Reddy case where his company’s name is also associated and another case filed against him by Aditya Verma( Cricket Association of Bihar secretary).
Reminds of the Amul Macho advertisement starring Saif Ali Khan – where he wins a race walking and says – ‘Bade Aaram Se’ ( With absolute ease).The advert depicts wearing Amul Macho vest one can do anything with ease 🙂 .
Former IPL Chariman , Lalit Modi , who has been a face of IPL’s success and the first controversy and who has now sheltered himself and family in the UK , wants BCCI chief, N Srinivasan, to resign from his post. This is after his son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings franchise owner , Gurunath Meiyappan , was arrested for his alleged involvement in IPL betting and match-fixing scandals. Modi is of the view that CSK is Srinivasan’s Team and just the face is his son-in-law.
