Srinivasan Appointed as ICC Chairman

June 26, 2014

Narayanaswami Srinivasan has been appointed as the Chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC), doctor despite investigations of corruption still hanging over him.

Srinivasan was suspended as the Chairman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BBCI) whilst a corruption charge was investigated relating to the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL).

Speaking on his appointment at the ICC, generic Srinivasan said: “I will leave no stone unturned in trying to strengthen the pillars and foundations of our sport, prescription both on and off the field.

“I want to ensure that cricket retains and grows its popularity, and that the ICC plays a leading role in this global growth.

“I want to see more strong teams in international cricket. For this to be achieved, we all need to work hard to develop local talent in our countries.”

It was also confirmed that more power would be given to India, Australia and England, whilst Mustafa Kamal became the ICC President.

India’s Supreme Court told Srinivasan to step down in March as the investigation into illegal betting in the IPL was undertaken.

However, this does not affect his position in the ICC.
