New Delhi: Apr 9, 2014

Unrecognised Cricket Association of Bihar  secretary Aditya Verma said he would file a contempt petition before the Supreme Court if under-fire N Srinivasan attends the International Cricket Council (ICC) executive board meeting in Dubai.

Verma said Srinivasan cannot represent Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in the April 9-10  ICC meeting in the light of recent Supreme Court order.

“Mr Srinavasan has attended Scheduled ICC executive board meeting in Dubai on April 9th/10th as BCCI ‘Representative’ despite being sidelined form Cricket Board affair following Hon’ble Supreme Courts Directive,” Verma said in a statement.

“As per Hon’ble Supreme Courts Order dated 28.03.2014, in SLP (C) No/25027 of 2013, Mr N Srinivasan, president of BCCI, had made a written offer to Hon’ble Supreme Court, through his counsel, that till investigation, into which allegations against him are completed he shall not discharge any of the functions of President of BCCI. The Hon’ble Supreme Court vide its order dated 28.03.2014 further directed that none of the employees of India Cements or its associate companies (except cricket players and commentators) will perform any of the duties assigned to them by the BCCI.

“In view of the afforested directive of Hon’ble Supreme Court, N Srinivasan cannot represent BCCI, being an employee of India Cement and the same is violative of Order of Hon’ble Supreme Court and thus contemptuous in nature,” said Verma.

Reports have said that Srinivasan “will attend the ICC Board meeting” despite being sidelined from the Cricket Board’s affairs following the Supreme Court directive.

A senior Board official had confirmed that Srinivasan “will attend ICC Board meeting”, according to ESPNcricinfo.

While the Supreme Court had shunted out Srinivasan from all affairs of the Board, the two-judge bench had declined to pass an order in relation to his role in ICC affairs, saying it was an “internal” matter of the BCCI.

Normally, the BCCI president is inducted onto the ICC board as a Director and the secretary attends the ICC Chief Executives Committee meetings.

At every Annual General Meeting, it is the BCCI president who nominates the Board’s representative at ICC meetings, and at the last meeting held in Chennai on September 29, 2013, it was verbally decided that “Srinivasan will continue to be in the (ICC) executive board and Sanjay Patel [secretary] in the CEC.”
