Former BCCI president IS Bindra on Wednesday appealed to the directors on the ICC’s executive board and its Development International Board to probe N Srinivasan for allegedly violating the Ethics Code of the governing body.
In an open letter, which was released to the media in London, Bindra wrote: “It gives me great pain to write this letter, especially because the person who is at the centre of the controversy happens to be heading the same board of which I have been a member for the last 38 years and served as its President,” he wrote.
Bindra said Clause 2.1 of the Code clearly states that the directors shall act in an ethical manner and shall not engage in conduct that gives the appearance of impropriety and Clause 4.1 makes it abundantly clear that directors shall not use their position with ICC for personal gain.
