Srinivasan to attend ICC meeting

CricInfo, Dubai

Despite having been sidelined from BCCI affairs following a Supreme Court directive, N Srinivasan will attend the ICC executive board meeting, to be held in Dubai on April 9 and 10, in his capacity as a BCCI "representative."
While BCCI interim president Shivlal Yadav said he has "no comment on this" and secretary Sanjay Patel didn't respond to queries, a senior BCCI official confirmed to ESPNcricinfo that Srinivasan "will attend the ICC Board meeting".
While splitting the BCCI presidency between Sunil Gavaskar (IPL affairs) and Yadav for other issues, the two-judge bench of the Supreme Court had declined to pass an order in relation to Srinivasan's role in ICC affairs, saying it was an "internal" matter of the BCCI.
In normal practice, the BCCI president is inducted onto the ICC board as a Director while the secretary attends the ICC Chief Executives Committee meetings. At every Annual General Meeting (AGM), it is the BCCI president who nominates the Board's representative at ICC meetings. At the last BCCI held in Chennai on September 29, 2013, it is understood the issue of an ICC representative had been discussed and it was verbally decided that "Srinivasan will continue to be in the (ICC) executive board and Patel in the CEC."
