Thursday 07 May 2015

The UK firm hired by N Srinivasan to spy on board officials, was paid $900,000 for the job, according to media reports. Srinivasan allegedly used BCCI funds to pay a London-based private agency to tap the phones of board officials and hack their e-mails.

An official probe into the matter, headed by BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur, will soon be launched. The board will investigate why the former BCCI chief allegedly snooped on its members and who authorized the hefty sum that was being spent for this purpose.

The Indian cricket board is expected to meet for its first working committee meeting under the new President Jagmohan Dalmiya on Sunday to discuss the latest allegations, appointment of next India coach, CSK's low de-merger valuation of Rs.5 lakh, and Neeraj Kumar's appointment as the ACU's chief consultant.
