N Srinivasan has reportedly taken charge of the Board of Control for Cricket in India once again. This after an internal probe last week gave him and his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, amongst others, a clean chit in the Indian Premier League spot-fixing case.
Sources say that Srinivasan took charge as president of BCCI at 8pm on Tuesday evening. This despite a Bombay High Court ruling that the constitution of the probe panel which gave his team Chennai Super Kings a clean chit was "illegal and unconstitutional."

Earlier on Tuesday, a defiant Srinivasan has said that he will attend the BCCI's Working Committee meeting on August 2. "Yes, I will be attending the BCCI working Committee meeting in New Delhi on August 2," he was quoted as saying by PTI. (Also read: Lalit Modi warns BCCI members to not support Srinivasan blindly)
