Yadav likely to be president

Former India off-spinner and interim president of BCCI Shivlal Yadav in all likelihood is the frontrunner to replace N Srinivasan as the full-time president of the board at the next AGM.

In a private gathering of the N Srinivasan faction in the city on Saturday, the Tamil Nadu strongman has expressed his desire to see one of his close confidants Shivlal being supported by the East Zone units, namely Bengal, Assam, Jharkhand, Odisha, Tripura.

“We have been with Srinivasan for a long time and if he wants us to support Shivlal, then we will probably toe the line,” a member of one the east Zone said. In fact Jagmohan Dalmiya, harbouring ambitions of becoming president, decided to skip the evening get-together of the Srinivasan faction probably having seen the writing on the wall.
