However, adamant BCCI president N Srinivasan did not budge from his position until the BCCI board members met to oust him, albeit temporarily. The choice of his interim replacement was Dalmiya. Dalmiya has served at the top most position of Cricket, that is, ICC Chief, in the past. However, he renounced the position following a chaotic TV rights row in 2000. Nevertheless, the cricketing ties of Jagmohan Dalmiya continued as he became the president of Board of Cricket Control in India in 2001.
This stay of Dalmiya was eventful for all the wrong reasons especially the start. Dalmiya was involved in a fierce battle of words with Match referee Mike Denness during South African tour of India in 2001. 6 Indian players were accused for different reasons including Cricket Icon Sachin Tendulkar. Dalmiya was later alleged for misappropriation of funds during 1996 World Cup for which he was later exonerated by the Supreme Court. He now resumes the BCCI chief office.
