BCCI atmosphere not good, election will create more bitterness: N Srinivasan tells Sharad Pawar
Nagpur: Former BCCI president Sharad Pawar on Thursday said here that N Srinivasan had told him in their meeting that he was not in the race for the post of the Board president.
"Srinivasan felt that the present atmosphere at the BCCI was not good and it (an election) will create more bitterness and therefore it would be in the interest of the BCCI not to hold a contest," Pawar said.
Dalmiya's death has created vacancy at the top at BCCI.
But Srinivasan (who is still the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association chief) told him that he was not interested in occupying the post, said Pawar.
The two agreed in the meeting that unanimous selection of the new president would be desirable, he added.
Srinivasan, who had to quit the post of BCCI president over 'conflict of interest' issue, flew in here last night by a special flight and met Pawar who is on a tour of Vidarbha region to meet the kin of the deceased farmers who committed suicide.
Sources said NCP leader and former union minister Praful Patel was also present during the meeting.
