Former Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president N Srinivasan hit out at a journalist for asking him in what capacity he attended the Special General Meeting of the cricket board on Monday. Srinivasan attended the SGM as a representative of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA).

However, he stands disqualified to be an office-bearer of TNCA as well as BCCI in the wake of Lodha panel recommendations.

"Where are you from, which channel," Srinivasan questioned a scribe when he asked him in what capacity he attended the SGM.

To which, an visibly angry Srinivasan responded, "I congratulate you, you just now made me (to) shut up".

When the scribe again asked the same question, the former ICC chief said, "Better right (capacity) than you have to ask me".

Srinivasan, who dodged various questions, said he was "happy after BCCI meeting. Every-thing was unanimous".

TNCA's Executive Committee had nominated Srinivasan to be the association's representative at the meet.

Meanwhile, in a move expected to further delay the implementation of the Lodha panel reforms, the BCCI on Monday decided to form a committee for analysing how "best and quickly" the principal order of the Supreme Court can be executed.

The SGM did not take any decisive call as requested by the Committee of Administrators during a meeting with state units.

The principal issues are 'one state one vote', age cap of 70 years, cooling off period after every three years and reinstatement of a five-member selection panel instead of current three.
