Former BCCI chief N. Srinivasan said the present Board president Anurag Thakur was “both experienced and capable.”

He added, “I have already sent him a congratulatory message after he was elected president.”

The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association president said he was hopeful of finding a solution to the issue of the three disputed stands, ‘I, J and K’ at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium. “I am optimistic,” he said.

On Chennai hosting a Test against England this season, he said, “I am pleased that the Chennai fans will get to see some international cricket. I do not think the three stands will be an issue for a Test match.”

Asked about Chennai Super Kings two-year ban, Srinivasan said, “One season is already gone. There is only one more year of the ban. Time flies. CSK will be back.”

He said there was no loss of reputation for CSK because of the ban. “I don’t think there is any reputation loss. All of you, if you touch your heart and ask the question, you will know why all this happened.”
