Calcutta: Narayanswamy Srinivasan on Sunday put up a brave front dismissing any suggestion that he had been disturbed following the series of events that unfolded in the wake of the alleged involvement of his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan in the IPL-VI spot-fixing scandal.
“I was always relieved, I really don’t understand what the problem is. I’ve done nothing wrong... Is there any accusation or case against me?” said the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president.
Srinivasan also made it clear that he would chair the annual general meeting of the BCCI in Chennai, on September 29.
“I will chair the AGM,” Srinivasan told reporters after the working committee meeting on Sunday.
Srinivasan said he was happy with the way the working committee meeting unfolded. “I’m happy with the way the working committee meeting went off today... But you’ve got to ask the members to seek their opinion...”
Srinivasan also announced that the series in South Africa was on despite the wranglings over the itinerary.
“I’ve not said that the South Africa series will be scrapped. It’s definitely on. We have just proposed a West Indies series in November. Neither was there any discussion on the South Africa series nor any member raised any questions on the series at today’s meeting,” he said.
Secretary Sanjay Patel also voiced his support for Srinivasan. “There’s no reason why Srinivasan shoudn’t attend the AGM. In any case, he’s the Board president.”
