Verma calls for Srinivasan’s recall from ICC chairman’s post

Cricket Association of Bihar secretary Aditya Verma on Monday shot off a letter to BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya and secretary Anurag Thakur, asking the duo to “recall the nomination” of N Srinivasan from the powerful post of ICC chairman. “During the pendency of the appeals against the Bombay High court orders, the Supreme Court constituted an independent probe panel under Justice Mukul Mudgal and directed N Srinivasan to step aside as president of BCCI by order dated 28-03-2014.

Despite this order the BCCI nominated N Srinivasan to the post of chairman ICC since it was the turn of BCCI to have its nominee. BCCI did not care about institutional integrity and had no hesitation in nominating a person who was asked by the Supreme Court to step down as BCCI president. Since the endorsement was prior to the election of the new office bearers of BCCI and now that new office bearers have taken charge it is requested that an urgent AGM of BCCI may be convened to recall Srinivasan’s name from the post of ICC chairman to maintain institutional integrity and demonstrate respect which BCCI holds for the SC,” Verma, the petitioner in the IPL spot-fixing case, wrote in his letter.
