He's working overtime to keep the numbers in his favour. Hanging on to his chair by a thread, N Srinivasan's defiant plans could now be scuttled. The Supreme Court (SC) has admitted a plea to stall n Srinivasan from contesting for the post of president on the 29th. The plea also asks the Court to ensure Srinivasan's exclusion from all Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) committees. Continuing to function as the BCCI President despite stepping aside, the Bombay High Court and then the SC had refused to grant any relief to Srinivasan, cornering him on the BCCI's probe panel that gave his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan a clean chit. With Meiyappan's chargesheet, support for Srinivasan is fast dwindling across all zonal associations. Outnumbered and isolated in the BCCI, Srinivasan can still hold onto power on a constitutional loophole. The under fire President can survive by solely holding onto to his south bastion. Despite their image taking a massive beating, BCCI's top brass continue to ignore the serious breaches. The game tarnished and sullied. It now seems only the Courts can stop Srinivasan and Friday's verdict could end brazen quest to hold on to power.
