Ex-BCCI general manager Dr MV Sridhar passes away

Ex-BCCI general manager Dr MV Sridhar passes away”

Dr. Sridhar, the former secretary of Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) before being appointed in his role by former BCCI chief N. Srinivasan, had been under the scanner, with allegations of financial impropriety in his home state association. Sridhar was credited with being one of the most influential batsmen in a Hyderabad side that was without Mohammed Azharuddin, who was away on national duty.

Former BCCI general manager MV Sridhar has died of a cardiac arrest, ANI reported Monday afternoon. A right-handed batsman, Sridhar's career spanned between 1988 and 2000 and he amassed 6701 runs. He posted his highest score of 366 against Andhra.

Only last month, Sridhar had resigned as BCCI general manager of cricket operations and had been keeping a low profile since then. According to reports, Sridhar was getting ready to have lunch when he suffered a heart attack. Sridhar understood the demands of a professional cricketer, as he was a top level first-class player.

He was also the media manager for the Indian team tour to Australia in 2007 where he was appreciated for handling the Harbhajan Singh-Andrew Symonds controversy when the team threatened to return to the country.

Deeply distressed to hear the passing of Dr. Sridhar, Bhogle said, "Doc Sridhar was someone you could call anytime".

Following Anil Kumble's resignation, after his much-publicized differences with skipper Virat Kohli, the Indian Cricket Board sent Sridhar to West Indies, in July this year. To have the players in good frame of mind, Sridhar was sent to the Caribbean and also get a first-hand account of their requirements.

A genial man, Sridhar or "Doc", as he was fondly known in the fraternity, was always accessible regarding any cricket- related issue.
