According to various reports that are appearing in the media, former BCCI president N. Srinivasan could find himself in more trouble after supposedly snooping on former members of the BCCI. Just a few days ago, Srinivasan was accused of undervaluing the worth of IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Srinivasan, who is now the ICC chairman, had allegedly paid Rs. 14 crore on the behalf of BCCI, to watch over board members. The payment was apparently made to a London-based private agency, who were expected to tap phones and track e-mails of the BCCI members.
The BCCI are all set to launch an enquiry into the issue, with secretary Anurag Thakur expected to head such an investigation. Thakur has his own problems as well as he was recently been seen with a bookie, a situation which had alerted the ICC.
The BCCI meeting, which is scheduled for today, will also decide whether the Champions League T20 is to be continued or not. The international franchise-based T20 tournament has not caught the imagination of fans and sponsors, and could make way for longer tours for the Indian cricket team.Published 26 Apr 2015, 16:43 IST
