Board Of Control For Cricket In India President Srinivasan Begins Push For Re-Election

BCCI President N. Srinivasan has made a plan to ensure re-election.

The current Board of Control for Cricket in India president N Srinivasan’s tenure gets over in September 2014, but he may not be done with the all-powerful chair yet.

If all goes according to his plan, Srinivasan is set to get re-elected. The groundwork has started and on the sidelines of the Indian Premier League auction the Tamil Nadu strongman made clear his intentions of continuing in the chair till 2017.

Next, from 2014 to 2017, is the turn of East zone and all it requires is two state units from that zone to propose the name. With at least four associations on his side — Assam, Jharkhand, Tripura and Odisha — Srinivasan is sitting pretty with numbers. The remaining two votes are with Jagmohan Dalmiya, the Cricket Association of Bengal and the National Cricket Club.

The only roadblock in Srinivasan’s continuation can be Dalmiya, given his renewed interest in the Board’s activities. But given the way the current balance of power is stacked in favour of Srinivasan, Dalmiya’s resistance may drown out in the number game, especially in front of Srinivasan’s now-famous tactics of getting people on his side through persuasion and inducements.

Board of Control for Cricket in India President N. Srinivasan’s tenure ends in September, "but he may not be done with the all-powerful chair yet," according to Sai Prasad Mohapatra of the HINDUSTAN TIMES. If all goes according to his plan, Srinivasan "is set to get re-elected." The groundwork has started and on the sidelines of the Indian Premier League auction "the Tamil Nadu strongman made clear his intentions of continuing in the chair" till '17. Next, from '14-17, is the turn of East zone "and all it requires is two state units from that zone to propose the name." With at least four associations on his side -- Assam, Jharkhand, Tripura and Odisha -- Srinivasan "is sitting pretty with numbers." The "remaining two votes are with" former BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya, the Cricket Association of Bengal and the National Cricket Club. The only roadblock in Srinivasan’s continuation can be Dalmiya, "given his renewed interest in the Board’s activities." But given the way the "current balance of power is stacked in favor" of Srinivasan, Dalmiya’s resistance "may drown out in the number game" (HINDUSTAN TIMES, 2/16). In Mumbai, Dwaipayan Datta wrote the BCCI "is planning to go all-out in its bid to present a corruption-free image of the IPL to the public" before the '14 season starts. It was told to the IPL governing council members that the BCCI will launch a "clean-IPL" campaign in March leading up to the tournament. A BCCI source said, "We will not only stick to Hindi or English. The campaign will be in different regional languages across India and top cricketers will be used for the campaign." Even though "the BCCI top-brass has been putting up a brave front, they know that the image of IPL has taken a beating following the spot-fixing scandal." The source added, "We want to ensure that when the tournament starts this year, the fans watch cricket with no baggage of what happened last year" (TIMES OF INDIA, 2/15).

PAKISTAN WANTS IN
: The PTI reported Pakistan cricket captain Mohammad Hafeez felt that the Pakistan Cricket Board "should sort out the issue of Pakistani players not being allowed to play" in the IPL. Hafeez said, "It is strange that for years now Pakistani players have not been allowed to play in the IPL." Hafeez said that "he personally would like to play in the IPL if the doors are open." Hafeez: "My belief has always been to keep politics and sports apart" (PTI, 2/16). The PTI also reported former PCB Chair Zaka Ashraf on Sunday "alleged that he was threatened" by the BCCI for opposing the structural overhaul of the Int'l Cricket Council. Ashraf: "They were threats directed at Pakistan but our stance was clear." Ashraf was removed from his post last week by PM Nawaz Sharif for "mishandling Pakistan's case in the changes brought in the ICC" and was replaced by Najam Sethi (PTI, 2/16).
