BCCI chief seeks extension
New Delhi - Narainswamy Srinivasan says he'll seek an extension to his term as president of the Indian cricket board despite being sidelined while his son-in-law is under investigation in the wake of a spot-fixing scandal in the Indian Premier League.
The Times of India newspaper on Friday quoted Srinivasan as saying he was "eligible for election."
According to Board of Control for Cricket in India rules, a president is elected for two years but the tenure can be extended by a year unless there is opposition to his candidature.
Srinivasan stood aside from actively running the BCCI in June pending an investigation into Gurunath Meiyappan's role in spot-fixing, with former president Jagmohan Dalmiya taking over on an interim basis.
