Kolkata (Agencies): Fearing legal repercussions, N. Srinivasan on Sunday refrained from staging a comeback as the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) but attended the Board’s working committee meeting. It was an anti-climatic end to the drama that preceded the meeting whereby there was a dilemma whether he would chair the meeting while defying the court restrictions.
The working committee has decided to have its crucial Annual General Meeting in Chennai on September 29. There was intense speculation ahead of the meeting on whether Srinivasan, who had stepped aside in the wake of the IPL spot-fixing scandal, will regain control of the Board as he aims for a second term at the helm. Srinivasan was in attendance as President of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA), while interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya chaired the working committee meeting which also ratified the audited accounts of the Board. Though Dalmiya chaired the meeting, Srinivasan presided when matters concerning the accounts came up.
