India Cricket : What N Srinivasan Said, Really Meant and Definitely Did Not

 What he said:

"We were taken for a ride. I know we cannot plead before you that we did not know all this was happening. Your question would be, were you not vigilant? What did you do? I am sorry, sir, there is no defence for me. No defence in front of you. So, I am not pleading that at all. We just put our heads down."

N Srinivasan, BCCI Secretary and owner of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), claims that he and his colleagues were hoodwinked by ex-IPL commissioner Lalit Modi.

His remarks were made to Parliament’s Standing Committee on finance  when it was discovered that all cheques were signed by Srinivasan—then treasurer—and his successor, MP Pandove.

N Srinivasan's appointment as BCCI President has been conditionally cleared by the Supreme Court of India.

 

What he really meant:

“So what if I’m MD of India Cements. Lalit Modi outsmarted us. Believe us, we’re innocents.”

 

What he definitely didn’t:

“The IPL Governing Council was farcical.”
