Former ICC Chairman N Srnivasan has donated 2 crores in the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund. He along with his daughter, met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and then gave the cheque to her personally. However there were no signs of his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, who has been found guilty of betting in IPL matches.
It has been long that N Srinivasan came into news for a good reason. Few months back, he was in the news for being sacked as the Chairman of the ICC. Before that, he made into the news all because of the controversies, that didn’t bring a good image to him. However, more of these noble acts and he may well restore a good image

Tamil Nadu cricketers like Abhinav Mukund, Baba Aparajith and Baba Indrajith played their part in the distribution of the essentials to the needy people. R Ashwin and Murali Vijay played cricket for India, unaware of the situation of their family. Ashwin couldn’t contact them for more than 24 hours. HE later dedicated his ‘ Man of the Series’ award to those affected by the Chennai rain.
