Reinstate me as president: Srini

New Delhi, Nov 22, 2014, DHNS:
ICC chairman N Srinivasan on Friday urged the Supreme Court to reinstate him the BCCI President claiming that there was "absolutely nothing" in the Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee report “incriminating” him in the IPL 6 scam.

Simultaneously, India Cements, the company of which he is the Managing Director, also pleaded with the court not to pass any adverse order against the firm that could lead to cancellation of the franchise of Chennai Super Kings.

The company distanced itself from the findings on ‘misdemeanour’ of Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan. Controverting the panel's findings, it said Meiyappan is "neither a shareholder nor a director nor an employee and has not drawn any salary, honorarium or compensation of any kind from CSK or from India Cements."

The panel had rejected the plea that Meiyappan was not in any way associated by the CSK.

Srinivasan, who filed his objections to the final report of the committee in an affidavit, said that he believed that the conclusion in the report clearly vindicated his stand that all allegations made against him were “completely false, baseless and motivated out of malice.”

The responses have come on a court's notice on the findings of the panel report.
Further, Srinivasan countered the findings of the panel that he along with four other Board officials did not take action against Individual 3 (player) despite being aware of his misconduct saying that the then President had dealt with the issue and he cannot be attributed with any inaction.

Srinivasan said he has been cleared of charges of betting, match-fixing or scuttling the investigation.

He referred to the responses filed on Thursday by the BCCI and Ranjib Biswal, President of Orissa Cricket Association, in which they mentioned that the alleged violation of players code of conduct by 'Individual 3' was brought to the notice of then Board's President Shas­hank Manohar and action was taken for the "minor incident".

It pleaded that any adverse order against India Cements could have "disastrous consequences" not only for the CSK but for the entire league, cricketers and those associated with the IPL.
