Mumbai:  International Cricket Council CEO David Richardson says N Srinivasan at the ICC helms and Shashank Manohar being the BCCI president will not affect the relationship between the board and the world governing body. Asked whether Srinivasan as ICC head and Manohar as BCCI chief will affect the relations between the two organisations, Richardson replied in negative. “No at the moment Mr Srinivasan is the BCCI representative to the ICC and we have no issues with that,” the former South African player said on sidelines of a function here. Manohar was critical of Srinivasan during the IPL spot-fixing scandal and asked the Tamil Nadu strongman to step down from the post of then BCCI president.

Earlier, ICC chairman N Srinivasan represented India at the governing body’s board meeting that concluded in Dubai as the newly-elected BCCI president Shashank Manohar skipped the proceedings. According to an ICC release, Srinivasan’s name was there in both the chairman’s as well as the India representative’s column in the list of members attending the governing body’s board meeting. It was learnt that Srinivasan was in the thick of things discussing commercial future of bilateral series. While PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan was present but in Manohar’s absence he might not have made headaway into discussions on an Indo-Pak series, the possibilities of which look bleak at the moment.
