Sridhar resigns as BCCI's cricket operations head
A domestic stalwart who scored heaps of runs for Hyderabad, he had failed to disclose the facts about him owning clubs in the jurisdiction of the Hyderabad Cricket Association
Dr. M.V. Sridhar has resigned from the post of the the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI’s) general manager–cricket operations following allegations of ‘conflict of interest’. His resignation was accepted by the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) at its meeting in Mumbai on Wednesday.
The Hindu understands that Dr. Sridhar tendered his resignation last week and the CoA has agreed to release him on September 30, days before the domestic season kicks off. To discuss the revised structure of the cricket operations department, BCCI chief executive Rahul Johri will address the group in the BCCI headquarters on Friday.
Dr. Sridhar, a domestic stalwart who scored heaps of runs for Hyderabad, had failed to disclose the facts about him owning clubs in the jurisdiction of the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA). The disclosure was a part of an exercise undertaken by the CoA to start implementing the ‘conflict of interest’-related guidelines among BCCI employees.
That Dr. Sridhar, a former HCA secretary before being appointed in his role by former BCCI chief N. Srinivasan, did not disclose owning six clubs was brought to the notice of the CoA by former HCA president and India off-spinner Arshad Ayub.
