N Srinivasan Controversies

  • When N Srinivasan became the owner of Chennai Super Kings in 2008, it was against the clause 6.2.4 of BCCI which states that “no administrator of BCCI could have had, directly or indirectly, any commercial interest in the matches or events conducted by the cricket board’. A case against him on the basis of this conflict of interest is still pending in the Supreme Court of India.
  • In 2013, N Srinivasan’s son-in-law and CSK team principal Gurunath Meiyappan was arrested by Mumbai Police on the basis of involvement in betting and sharing insider information with bookies. There was a huge media outrage wanting N Srinivasan’s resignation from the BCCI President post. As a result of that, he resigned from the post on 2nd June 2013 but the Supreme Court allowed him to take charge again on 8th October 2013.
  • On 25th March 2014, Supreme Court of India ruled N. Srinivasan to step down as BCCI President to conduct the fair investigations about him for all the cases.
  • On 27th November 2014, Supreme Court declared that N Srinivasan’s conflict of interest was clear as he owns a team in IPL and asked BCCI to conduct a new election for BCCI President without N Srinivasan.
  • The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is currently investigating a case in which it was alleged that N Srinivasan’s company India Cements has invested Rs 140 Cr into Jaganmohan Reddy’s multiple businesses in return for the various benefits received from Andhra Pradesh government over the years.
