BCCI Confirm that Srinivasan Still Set to Take Over as ICC Chairman

June 20, 2014

N Srinivasan is still set to become the first-ever Chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Board, after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed his candidacy for the role.

Srinivasan was forced to step down as President of BCCI in March after the Supreme Court investigated allegations of illegal betting during the India Premier League (IPL).

The Supreme Court has now refused to restrain Srinivasan from taking over as ICC Chairman and the BCCI has sent a final confirmation that he would be the candidate to head the all-powerful Board.

A senior BCCI office-bearer told PTI in India: “The BCCI needed to send a re-confirmation of who will be their candidate for the post of chairman of the ICC Board.

“The name of Mr Srinivasan was decided in February itself but as per ICC norm, we needed to send a re-confirmation a week before the start of the Annual Conference.

“Accordingly, we have sent Srinivasan’s name for the chairman’s post.”

The news means that Srinivasan is set to take charge on June 29 in Melbourne, Australia, after the six-day annual conference.
