NEW DELHI: In a letter reportedly written to the Indian Cricket Board, the International Cricket Council (ICC) headed by N Srinivasan has the drawn the attention to Board Secretary Anurag Thakur socializing with a suspected bookie lately. 

The ICC letter dated April 22 addresses BCCI Chief Jagmohan Dalmiya informing him about allegation against Thakur socializing with Karan Gilhotra, a suspected books, few days after being elected as the BCCI Secretary. 

Gilhotra’s name is on the latest database of ICC’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit, reports suggest.

The ICC mail explains that its ACSU had received unconfirmed information in 2014 that Karan Gilhotra was trying to influence Indian Premier League (IPL) players and its supporting staff. 

It also states that Ravi Sawani, director of the BCCI ACSU, had written to all franchise managers in 2014 directing them to take appropriate measures to ensure that Gilhotra was not entertained by any of the team members.

According to the reports, the BCCI had not reverted to the mail even after four days after it was sent by the ICC.

An ICC source said that Dalmiya did not act on the mail shared with the Indian Board. However, Dalmiya reportedly claimed of not seeing the letter.

The increasing tension between Srinivasan, who is seen to be losing his vice-like hold on the Indian Board ever since Thakur and Dalmiya took over the charge was blatant.

Ever Scheming Mr.Srini

Srinivasan is proving to be a master schemer and an dirty politician and an equalanece of cricketing rowdy.and the role that he says that he is a mere corporate does not cut any ice with the people here.We all know that after the supreme court verdict that bars india cements memebers to own the chennai superkings, srinivasan has schemed to transfer the ownership to an dystopian trust ofcourse stealthly controlled by him,for a paltry few lakhs.Even a kid will qustion this logic and say that dhoni himself earns more than 13 million dollars an year alone.now that BCCI has questioned this,srinivasan is plotting his next move in the never ending chess game of indian cricket by scheming to to pin anurag takur for no fault of his and creating a rift in board which will pave way for srini's ambition of greed and making more money through CSK.If this goes on CSK already has and will in future flex its money power and political power over other franchisee by buying more powerful cricketing stars like srini did on flintoff and maccullum's case and they will retain and dominate IPL for another 20 years and srinivasan waddling into a ocean of green bucks.IS there no limit to his dirty politics?is ordinary people muted on this injustice.Iam dissapoint5ed with supreme court in that it didnt ban srinivasan outright when he is clearly complicit as he is already overdrive in scheming to cling to ownership of csk for a few lakhs like the greed shown by suresh kalmadiand when kalmadi is brought to justice is it far fetched to expect the same with srini?
