New Delhi: BCCI president N Srinivasan, who is set to take over as the new International Cricket Council chairman, said his prime focus during his tenure would be to make all the three formats of the game equally important. Srinivasan refused to talk about the Supreme Court inquiry panel report that found his son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings team official Gurunath Meiyappan guilty of betting in the Indian Premier League.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) Board passed some key structural and financial reforms last Saturday, which formalized powerhouse India's role as the game's financial bedrock and paved the way for Srinivasan to chair the ICC Board from July.
As per the resolution passed, a new Executive Committee will be formed to report to the board. The initial chair of this Executive Committee (ExCo) will be Wally Edwards from Cricket Australia while the chair of the Finance and Commercial Affairs Committee (F&CA) will continue to be Giles Clarke from the ECB. "For me, all three formats are equally important. The endeavour is to look after all three formats as it is necessary for the health and development of the game," Srinivasan told PTI during an interaction here on Tuesday.
