SC bars N. Srinivasan from representing BCCI at ICC meet

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The Supreme on Monday directed that former Board of Control for Cricket in (BCCI) president N. Srinivasan is not allowed to attend the meeting slated to be held on April 24 as his integrity is "questionable".

The apex bench, headed by Justice Dipak Misra, also clarified that CEO Rahul Johri and joint secretary Amitabh Chaudhary can attend the meeting.

The top issued this directive while hearing a plea filed by the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) against the BCCI's Committee of Administrators (CoA) in connection with the state cricket associations complying with the Lodha panel recommendations.

The CAB had informed the CoA that president Sourav Ganguly, the two joint secretaries Subir Ganguly and Avishek Dalmiya, assistant secretary Anu Dutta along with the three vice-presidents are still eligible for holding post in the office.

The only ineligible office-bearer is treasurer

Earlier, the CoA had adjourned its Special General Meeting (SGM) after it was decided that the board will wait for the Supreme Court's verdict on the eligibility of the members, who can be present in the meeting.

The CoA had sought intervention from the apex to adjudicate whether disqualified members can attend the meetings.

Srinivasan was present in the meeting held on April 12 despite being warned by the CoA. Srinivasan was forced out of the in the aftermath of the IPL 2013 spot-fixing scandal.

The primary objective of the SGM was reported to be the appointment of BCCI's representatives to the International Cricket Council (ICC) meetings.
