N Srinivasan paid London-based firm to spy on BCCI

Former BCCI President N Srinivasan just cannot keep himself out of controversies. Some or the other way, he keeps himself surrounded by them and always in the wrong way. Srinivasan, now could find himself facing another investigation, as allegations have emerged that he spied on other Board for Cricket Control in India (BCCI) members while he was board president.


According to a report in IBN Live, Srinivasan used BCCI funds to pay Rs 14 crore to a London-based private agency to tap the phones of board officials and hack their e-mails.


BCCI is supposed to meet on Sunday for the first working committee meeting under the newly appointed president Jagmohan Dalmiya, which brings serious fresh troubles for Srinivasan, who is also held responsible for undervaluing of the assets of Chennai Super Kings (CSK).


Secretary Anurag Thakur is all set to head the investigation panel as BCCI is expected to hold an enquiry on the suspected snooping on the BCCI officials.


The board is also expected to converse on the destiny of Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20), which has not been a great achievement and a loss-making property since its inception in 2009.
