India's highest court today barred former BCCI president N. Srinivasan from attending the International Cricket Committee(ICC) meeting on April 24, reports said.
Supreme Court directed BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary & CEO Rahul Johri to attend the ICC meeting.
"There is more than a cloud of doubt on N. Srinivasan," the court observed.
A bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra said since Srinivasan has been held guilty by the Supreme Court for conflict of interest, he cannot be allowed to represent the BCCI in the ICC meeting.
"It is directed that Amitabh Chaudhary shall represent the BCCI in the ICC meeting and Rahul Johri shall accompany him and he (Johri) will also attend the meetings of the CEOs'," the bench declared.
On April 10, the apex court had said that a person, who is "ineligible" to become an office bearer in the BCCI and state cricket associations, cannot be nominated to take part in the ICC meetings.
