  • Srinivasan to attend ICC meeting

    The sidelined supremo will attend the ICC executive board meeting, to be held in Dubai on April 9 and 10, as a BCCI "representative".

    BACK AGAIN?Despite having been sidelined from BCCI affairs following a Supreme Court directive, N Srinivasan will attend the ICC executive board meeting, to be held in Dubai on April 9 and 10, in his capacity as a BCCI "representative." While BCCI interim president Shivlal Yadav said he has "no comment on this" and secretary Sanjay Patel didn't respond to queries, a senior BCCI official confirmed to ESPNcricinfo that Srinivasan "will attend the ICC Board meeting".

    While splitting the BCCI presidency between Sunil Gavaskar (IPL affairs) and Yadav for other issues, the two-judge bench of the Supreme Court had declined to pass an order in relation to Srinivasan's role in ICC affairs, saying it was an "internal" matter of the BCCI.

The little master recounted his journey from his first Test in Pakistan in 1989 to this record-breaking encounter. Excerpts...

  • Disappointed, yet positive

    Despite being "very disappointed", S Sreesanth remained positive about the gruelling season ahead. Excerpts from an interview to Hindustan Times.

    India: Twenty-four hours after S Sreesanth injured his knee during India's warm-up session, his worst fears came true. He has been ruled out of the three-match Test series due to a "medial collateral ligament tear", an injury that will take around four weeks to heal. It was a shattered Sreesanth as he packed his bags on Monday.


    Despite being "very disappointed", Sreesanth remained positive about the gruelling season ahead. Excerpts from an interview to Hindustan Times:


    After the remarkable comeback in Kanpur (against Sri Lanka), you were down with swine flu. Now this.


    What can I say? I was free of injuries for six months, suddenly this happens. There're some things in life you can't control. I will meet a good knee specialist and get it sorted out. I was looking forward to being the silent killer again, that's what I was in Kanpur. I was
