Srinivasan appointment as Chairman of ICC

His appointment came after the Supreme Court refused to stop Srinivasan nomination to the ICC top position. Earlier, Srinivasan was barred by the Supreme Court from carrying out his duties as Board of Cricket of India (BCCI) President due to ongoing investigations into the match-fixing allegations in 2013 edition of the IPL.
