But according to him this is the same Narayanaswami Srinivasan who had instigated a court case against Jagmohan Dalmiya, accusing him of a trickery of Rs. 44 crores? Now, seeing the chance they have joined hands.
He was quoted saying: “It is like repainting the same old building and calling it new. It is important that a national sports bill is passed. People are holding the posts for 10, 15 or 20 years. They are ruining the sport.” Meanwhile, Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) vice president (South Zone) Dr. G Gangaraju said that the newly recruited administration will work for the betterment of the Indian cricket.
