The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have re-elected N Srinivasan as their president for a second term, after he stood unopposed at their Annual General Meeting on Sunday.

Srinivasan stood unopposed, though he will not be able to discharge his duties yet, as the Supreme Court have yet to rule on an investigation into corruption in the Indian Premier League. That decision is due on Monday.

Srinivasan was in the news during the IPL this year after charges of corruption were laid against his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, who was heavily involved with the Chennai Super Kings.

As for other board members, the IPL chairman post was handed to Ranjib Biswal, while Sanjay Patel and Anirudh Chaudhury were named the BCCI secretary and treasurer respectively.
