Earlier on Tuesday, a Srinivasan has said that he will attend the BCCI’s Working Committee meeting on August 2. He quoted as saying, “Yes, I will be attending the BCCI working Committee meeting in New Delhi on August 2.”
Earlier in June, Srinivasan had ‘stepped aside’ when the probe panel was constituted and Jagmohan Dalmiya had taken over as interim president of BCCI. Several members had even reportedly asked for Srinivasan’s resignation but he maintained his position.
On Tuesday, Dalmiya on his part said that the Indian cricket board is in an embarrassing position. “I don’t have all the details yet and I don’t know if it is a crisis or not. But this has certainly put us in an embarrassing situation,” he told reporters on the issue of Bombay High Court questioning the findings of the probe panel.
BCCI had been slammed for its ‘shoddy probe’ into allegations of spot-fixing against Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals’ co-owner Raj Kundra. The probe was conducted by retired Tamil Nadu High Court judges T. Jayaram Chouta and R. Balasubramanian, who absolves Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, along with Meiyappan and Kundra.
