Mirpur: Mar 25, 2014

There was an eerie silence among the who’s who of cricket administration regarding what will be the fate of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president N Srinivasan and the board after the Supreme Court gave its observation.

With the Apex court asking Srinivasan to step down for a fair probe into the Indian Premier League (IPL) fixing scandal, questions are being raised about whether the Tamil Nadu strongman can indeed become the chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC’s) all powerful executive board.

“Let’s wait and watch. It will be very wrong to make any comments on Supreme Court observations. We should better wait till March 27 when the verdict will come out as then we will get a clearer picture,” a senior BCCI official said.

Even the ICC officials are tight-lipped about the proceedings although the bigwigs of the parent body are certainly keeping a close watch on the proceedings.

“Although, the new Executive Board of the ICC would take over in June but as per the norm, there is no such hurdle in becoming the Chairman of the ICC Executive Board even if he steps down as the BCCI chairman,” the official said.

“As far as the ICC constitution goes, Srinivasan is a BCCI nominee. The first chairman would be from BCCI, whether it is Srinivasan or someone else. Now it will be an interesting situation if he is no longer the BCCI president.

May be the members will have to do a re-think,” the influential member added.

Meanwhile, the Indian cricketers had an off-day and they kept to themselves.

India will resume training tomorrow but the media has been sent a release that there will be no press conference.

India is the only team that doesn’t believe in media activities if it’s not a pre-match day which makes it mandatory as per the guidelines of the ICC.
