Srinivasan cannot represent BCCI in ICC meet, says SC

The apex court allowed Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI's) Acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary to represent the cricket board at the ICC meeting on April 24 and directed BCCI CEO Rahul Johri to accompany him.

A bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra said since Srinivasan has been held guilty by the apex court for conflict of interest, he cannot be allowed to represent the BCCI in the ICC meeting.

"It is directed that Amitabh Chaudhary shall represent the BCCI in the ICC meeting and Rahul Johri shall accompany him and he (Johri) will also attend the meetings of the CEOs'," the bnech, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and and D Y Chandrachud, said.

On April 10, the apex court had said that a person, who is "ineligible" to become an office bearer in the BCCI and state cricket associations, cannot be nominated to take part in the ICC meetings.

The observations came when the counsel for the apex court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) sought a hearing on the interim plea seeking clarification on whether persons, who are rendered ineligible to hold posts in cricket bodies as per the July 18, 2016 judgement, can be nominated as BCCI representative to take part in the ICC meeting.
