Mike Hussey says 'might have been wrong' about Meiyappan's role at CSK

Sydney, Oct 16 (ANI): Former Australian Test cricketer Michael Hussey has said that he might have been a little bit wrong about his statement that BCCI president N Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan ran the Chennai Super Kings franchise.

According to News.com.au, Hussey, who hopes to continue his involvement with the Super Kings, has become part of a growing Australian tradition of back-flipping for fear that the rivers of gold available through cricket in India may suddenly dry up.

Following the arrest of his son in law, the Supreme Court forced Srinivasan to step aside from daily administration of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the report said.

Despite all this the BCCI took the remarkable step of re-electing him unopposed as president, the report added.

Such is his power as BCCI boss that Srinivasan may bankrupt Cricket South Africa, until recently a close ally, the report further said. (ANI)
