N. Srinivasan Removed as ICC Chairman, BCCI President Shashank Manohar to Fill in

N. Srinivasan Removed as ICC Chairman, BCCI President Shashank Manohar to Fill in - The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has removed N Srinivasan as International Cricket Council's (ICC) chairman. The decision was taken at the Indian cricket board's Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Mumbai.

Srinivasan was elected for a two-year term. His tenure will be completed by current BCCI president Shashank Manohar, who will now head the ICC's Executive Committee till June 2016.

With Srinivasan's exit as ICC chairman, he is now left with one position as head of Tamil Nadu Cricket Association. Srinivasan's company India Cements had owned tainted IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

CSK has been suspended for 2 years by a Supreme Court appointed committee. Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, a team owner of CSK, was indicted for sharing team information and betting. He has been banned for life from cricket activities.

The scrutiny on Srinivasan increased after Lodha committee suspended CSK and Rajasthan Royals. Last week, the removal of Sundar Raman as IPL COO was a strong indication that Srinivasan would be dropped from his ICC post.
