New Delhi: Jul 31, 2013

A defiant N Srinivasan on Wednesday refused to comment on whether he has taken over again as president of the national governing body for cricket Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) bluntly telling the waiting mediamen to stop “hounding him”.

“I can’t reply, don’t hound me like this,” Srinivasan told reporters in Chennai when asked about his reported comeback at the helm of the BCCI.

There was intense media speculation that Srinivasan, who had stepped aside as the BCCI president pending an inquiry into the IPL 2013 spot-fixing controversy, had made a comeback to the top post on Tuesday evening though there was no confirmation.

There was no official communication from the BCCI on the issue yet. Some BCCI officials, when contacted, said they were not aware of any such development.

The Tamil Nadu strongman has argued that he can be back at his job now that the two-member internal inquiry commission to probe allegations of Indian Premier League spot-fixing and betting had completed its report and found no evidence against Chennai Super Kings and his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan.

The Bombay High Court, however, had declared the BCCI’s two-member probe as “illegal and unconstitutional”.

Hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by the Cricket Association of Bihar, a division bench of justices SJ Vazifdar and MS Sonak declared the two-member BCCI probe panel “unconstitutional and illegal”, a development which has put a spanner on Srinivasan’s return to the BCCI top post.

Unfazed by the Court order, Srinivasan had made it clear that he will attend the Working Committee here on August 2 which is expected to draw up the future course of action.

The Bombay High Court order has created a lot of confusion within the Board and interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya has no clue yet as to who will chair the Working Committee meeting on August 2.

“Who will chair August 2 meeting? I myself do not know where is the chair… Let me first understand where do I stand… I do not have any information officially. This however does not mean there is some difference with the BCCI,” Dalmiya had said.
