In spite of the Bombay High Court declaring illegal the BCCI's two-member probe panel into betting and spot-fixing in the IPL, N Srinivasan, who stepped aside till the internal inquiry was completed, is set to return as the president of the Indian cricket board.
He is unlikely to face strong opposition from the BCCI's working committee members, who are meeting in New Delhi on Friday. Unfazed Srinivasan 'will attend' BCCI meet
Srinivasan told The Indian Express, "I stepped aside on my own. I'm not an accused and there are no charges against me. And I am under no obligation to inform people (read press) whether I have returned to occupy the chair again or when I will be back." Express Editorial: Rehabilitation is evidently a rocky road
Srinivasan's return had become imminent after the internal probe had given a clean chit to Chennai Super Kings official and Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra.
This was before a division bench of the Bombay High Court declared the probe illegal on Tuesday, while hearing a PIL. The court has also asked the BCCI to form a new probe panel. Express Editorial: Clean chits won't be taken seriously
Cricket Association of Bengal president Jagmohan Dalmiya had taken over as the interim president of the BCCI when Srinivasan stepped aside.
Srinivasan said that the court's order would be discussed at the working committee meeting. "The electronic media reacted without properly reading the judgment. We have go to through the court order. We will discuss this in our working committee meeting on August 2 and will decide our next course of action after that," Srinivasan added.
On Friday at the working committee meeting, Srinivasan is likely to be allowed to take his own decisions.
