FICA hits out at Srinivasan’s appointment as ICC chief

Marsh wanted controversies surrounding Srinivasan to abate before he took charge as chairman

Melbourne: The Federation of International Cricketers Association (FICA) on Friday said it was disappointed with N. Srinivasan’s appointment to the post of ICC Chairman.

FICA’s outgoing President Paul Marsh said the world body should have waited for the allegations surrounding Srinivasan to be resolved before making him chairman of its board.

“We’ve seen in recent days significant changes at ICC level, which represent a new era in terms of the administration of world cricket. FICA’s position on this is well known.

Our strong preference was for the controversy involving Mr. Srinivasan in India to be resolved before the ICC made a decision on the chairmanship.

While it’s disappointing that this did not occur, we can’t let this distract FICA from its responsibility,” Marsh said.
