Kolkata: Under-fire BCCI president N Srinivasan on Sunday was booed by a capacity Eden Gardens crowd as his name was announced during the post-match presentation ceremony.

The moment Ravi Shastri announced the name of the controversial BCCI president, there was a loud jeer from the 61,000 odd crowd present at the stadium which reminded a lot of how former IOA chief Suresh Kalmadi was booed at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi at the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games, 2010.
