Former BCCI President N. Srinivasan, who is caught amidst IPL betting and spot fixing controversies, wants to return as BCCI President, according to NDTV.

Srinivasan wants to contest the BCCI elections to get his chair back. He will be holding a meeting with his loyalists on Saturday.

The former BCCI President met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday.

Jaitley made it clear to Srinivasan that he cannot go against the orders of the Supreme Court.

Thus, Srini can contest the BCCI elections only if he sells out his IPL team Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

The CSK owner is quite hopeful of getting support from BJP.

If things doesn't work in his favour, then Srini may propose the name of one of his loyalists for the post of BCCI President.

The election is scheduled for Feb 12.

The Supreme Court of India asked N. Srinivasan to step down as BCCI President on March 25, last year, after his son-in-law and CSK team principal Gurunath Meiyappan was implicated in the 2013 IPL betting and spot fixing case.
