BCCI might propose N Srinivasan as its representative in ICC's board of directors


By

New Delhi: In what could turn out to be a significant move, the BCCI may decide in its AGM to propose former president N Srinivasan as it's representative in ICC's powerful board of directors in place of Shashank Manohar.

Incidentally it was Manohar who was made BCCI representative at ICC 10 months back.

But since leaving BCCI to deal with Lodha crisis, Manohar has been at loggerheads with the BCCI on a host of issues with primary being abolition of lion's share of ICC revenue along with England and Australia.

Also he tried to pressurise for two-tier Test structure and also wanted India to come into the common revenue pool. It has been learnt that on 4 September, BCCI Secretary and Srinivasan's one-time adversary Ajay Shirke met him in Chennai to discuss board's current logjam with the Tamil Nadu strongman.

With BCCI completely aggrieved with Manohar's stand on Lodha Committee recommendations, the angry members may support the motion at AGM on Wednesday.

BCCI will be conducting its 87th Annual General Meeting in Mumbai with one of the items on the agenda being the election of its honorary secretary.

The other items on the agenda include adoption of the secretary's report, the treasurer's report and audited statement of accounts for the previous fiscal, annual budget for 2016-17 and other such routine matters.

The meeting will also confirm the minutes of its last AGM held on 9 November, 2015 as well as the three Special General Meetings held on 19 February, 22 May and 5 August this year.
