Cricket: Embattled Srinivasan re-elected Indian cricket chief amidst corruption scandal

NEW DELHI (AFP) - India's embattled cricket chief N. Srinivasan won a third term in office Sunday even though a Supreme Court order bars him from taking charge immediately due to a corruption scandal, sources said.

The 68-year-old cement tycoon, one of the most powerful men in world cricket, was elected unopposed for another year at the annual meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in Chennai.

Srinivasan's re-election was confirmed to AFP by two BCCI sources, who added that a formal announcement will be made later Sunday.
