N Srinivasan re-elected BCCI president

Screenshot_8Narayanaswamy Srinivasan has been re-elected as the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for a third term.

However he will not take charge immediately because of a Supreme Court directive who had restrained Srinivasan from taking charge if elected in response to a petition by the Secretary of the Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), who sought to restrain Srinivasan from getting re-elected.

CAB, which is not recognised by the BCCI, had asked the court not to allow Srinivasan to contest for the president’s post on the ground that his son-in-law, Gurunath Meiyappan, who was the team principal of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings, was charge-sheeted for betting in the 6th edition of the IPL Twenty20 tournament.
