Unrecognised Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) secretary Aditya Verma shot off another letter to the International Cricket Council (ICC), drawing its attention to “violation of ethics by the apex body and N Srinivasan”, who had stepped aside as Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president as per the Supreme Court’s directive.
Verma wrote the letter to ICC’s ethics officer.
“I want to draw your kind attention against violation of code of ethics by ICC and president of BCCI , N Srinivasan.
I have already sent three letters to ICC officials regarding the honourable Supreme Court of India’s 28.3.14 order. The highest court of India has stopped Srinivasan from discharging his duties as BCCI president,” Verma wrote in the letter.
The Supreme Court had forced Srinivasan to be sidelined from BCCI affairs but did not stop him from attending the ICC meet on April 9 and 10. Verma has strongly objected to the move and said that game’s top body should act tough on the Tamil Nadu strongman.
“Due to influence of Srinivasan all ICC officials have failed to take any decision. If this is the way ICC works, then the world will lose faith in the apex body. I am requesting you to intervene in the issue and take legal opinion of ICC council and save the game,” he added.
The apex court had rejected Srinivasan’s plea of being reinstated as the BCCI boss with the Justice Mudgal committee suggesting to carrying out a second round of investigation into the betting and match-fixing allegation that rocked the Indian Premier League (IPL) season 6.
