MV Sridhar resigns from BCCI

MV Sridhar resigns from BCCI

Hyderabad, Sept 27 (UNI) Dr MV Sridhar will cease to be the General Manager (Cricket Operations) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) from October 1. Conflict of interest, driven to the wall for quite a sometime and serving multiple positions, including as a manager of crucial overseas tours, could be the reasons why Sridhar tendered his resignation a few days back, sources on Wednesday said. His resignation has been accepted by the Committee of Administrators (CoA), which met in Mumbai on Wednesday. There have been several charges about alleged efforts made by him to hide the facts pertaining to his involvement in the affairs of Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA), of which he was the former vice-president and secretary. Although, the BCCI had set a deadline to all its employees to come clear on all such charges, Sridhar had purportedly ignored mentioning about his being an accused in ACB cases involving the HCA. To make matters worse, he did not mention about the HCA clubs that he was promoted. A notice was apparently served to him by Board CEO Rahul Johri, where in the administrator had specifically mentioned about the ‘faux pas’ and why the man in the dock was silent on the issues. Ironically, the various acts of omissions and commissions committed by Sridhar, who enjoyed the patronage of Tamil Nadu strongman N Srinivasan, were brought to the notice of the CoA by former HCA president Arshad Ayub. Sridhar had won appreciation from the cricketing world for his suave managerial and persuasive skills that went a long way in easing tensions and nipped a major crisis in the bud during a particularly volatile Indian tour Down Under. Meanwhile, efforts made to contact him turned futile. UNI XC KNR PS 2103
