Aditya Verma, secretary of the Cricket Association of Bengal, wrote to BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya, questioning N. Srinivasan’s election as TNCA president and his proposed presence at the ICC board meeting, as BCCI’s representative.

The ICC Board meeting will be held in Barbados, from June 24 to 26. Srinivasan will also chair the meet as the Head of world governing body of the game. Verma said, his representation at the ICC meet was against the spirit of the Supreme Court order, which barred him from heading the BCCI.

Verma has also forwarded a copy of the letter to the Supreme Court appointed, Justice R.M. Lodha Committee.

It may be recalled  that, on On 25 March 2014, the Supreme Court of India told N. Srinivasan to step down as BCCI President so that a fair investigation may be conducted in the 2013 spot- fixing scandal in the IPL, where his son-in- law, Gurunath Meiyappan, was indicted for betting . The court found it “nauseating” that he should hold on to the post, despite various courts censuring him

On 27 November 2014, the Supreme Court said that N Srinivasan’s conflict of interest was “obvious” as he also owned an IPL team, i.e. Chennai Super Kings. The court also asked BCCI if it was open to have a fresh poll for a new board, without N Srinivasan.
