N. Srinivasan, the suspended Board of Control for Cricket in India president, will 'represent' the Board in the two-day International Cricket Council meeting in Dubai starting Wednesday. Srinivasan has been sidelined by the Supreme Court in the wake of the match-fixing and betting scandal that hit the Indian Premier league last year. Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, who was a Chennai Super Kings team official, has been indicted for corruption.
On March 28, the Supreme Court appointed former cricketers Sunil Gavaskar and Shivlal Yadav as interim BCCI presidents till the IPL case was resolved. While Gavaskar was asked to handle IPL affairs, Yadav, a BCCI vice-president, was made in charge of non-IPL jobs. The top court also said no personnel involved with India Cements should be involved with BCCI's administration. Srinivasan is the Managing Director of India Cements, the owners of CSK.
ICC sources said Srinivasan will represent BCCI in the Board meeting. Whether he will finally 'sit' on the Board or will send a 'nominee' is still not clear. As per convention, the BCCI president attends ICC Executive Board meetings while the secretary (Sanjay Patel) is part of the Chief Executives' meeting.
