Dalmiya takes over as BCCI interim boss

Chennai, June 2 (IANS) BCCI chief N. Srinivasan Sunday stepped aside and Cricket Association of Bengal president Jagmohan Dalmiya took over as the “interim president” following the spot fixing and betting row.

Srinivasan agreed to give up presidency of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) during the probe in his jailed son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan’s role in the IPL spot fixing.

“Dalmiya has taken over as interim president. Srinivasan said he cannot resign,” Punjab Cricket Association president I.S. Bindra said after the meeting of the BCCI working committee.

“I questioned the legality of ‘interim president’ as the BCCI constitution does not permit this,” he said.
