N Srinivasan takes over as ICC chairman

N Srinivasan was confirmed as the new chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC) after the governing body approved constitutional change in Melbourne on Thursday.

Often described as the most powerful man in cricket, the 69-year-old industrialist from Chennai headed the Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) before stepping aside earlier this year after his son-in-law was indicted for illegal betting in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament last year.

"It is an honour to be confirmed as the Chairman of the International Cricket Council," Srinivasan said in a statement after the 52-member full council approved constitutional amendments.

The ICC annual conference also elected Mustafa Kamal of Bangladesh as the 11th president of the governing body and formed a new executive committee headed by Cricket Australia chairman Wally Edwards.
