Srinivasan to get nod as ICC chief at conference

By AFP, Sydney

Suspended Indian cricket chief Narayanaswami Srinivasan is expected to be anointed as the new ICC chairman at this week's annual conference in Melbourne which is set to address growing concerns about corruption in the sport.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India has confirmed the 69-year-old industrialist will stand as chairman of the International Cricket Council despite being suspended by India's Supreme Court as the country's cricket chief.  Srinivasan-seen as the most powerful man in world cricket was among 13 people named in a damning report into corruption allegations in the Indian Premier League.
The IPL Twenty20 competition has been embroiled in allegations of illegal betting and spot-fixing, including against Srinivasan's son-in-law.
