New Delhi: With the Supreme Court refusing to restrain N Srinivasan from taking over as ICC Chairman, the BCCI has sent a final confirmation to the world body intimating that its President-in-exile will be the candidate to head the all-powerful Board.
The Tamil Nadu strongman will officially take charge as the first-ever chairman of the all-powerful ICC Board on June 29 in Melbourne after the completion of its six-day annual conference starting June 23.
"The BCCI needed to send a re-confirmation of who will be their candidate for the post of chairman of the ICC Board. The name of Mr Srinivasan was decided in February itself but as per ICC norm, we needed to send a re-confirmation a week before the start of the Annual Conference. Accordingly, we have sent Srinivasan's name for the chairman's post," a senior BCCI office-bearer told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
