N Srinivasan's run in charge of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) has been extended, after he was re-elected unopposed as the president of the state association. The election was held during the TNCA's 86th annual general meeting, in Chennai, on Sunday.

Srinivasan, the former BCCI president who was forced to step aside following the IPL corruption scandal, has headed the TNCA since 2002-03, when he toppled his cricket-administration-mentor-turned-bitter-rival AC Muthiah in the race for the presidency.

Kasi Viswanathan was re-elected secretary for the tenth year in succession.

The Hindu reported that there were no contests for any of the TNCA posts, with the candidates from the ruling group taking charge of all of them unchallenged.

    CHANDRA -- Other states have grounds and stadiums in many towns but Chennai has CHEPAUK PITCH for test matches and that is the difference. It has history and knowledgeable SPECTATORS which can not be expected anywhere.

    I do not care who leads TNCA. Why non other than Chennai in Tamilnadu can host international games? Looks at other states where multiples cities has stadiums and capabilities to host international matches. In the grounds in other parts can not even host IPL matches. Chennai has been there for ever and it is the fault all the previous presidents not to develop other cities in TN. Also, What is happening with Chennai, with the issues of the extended construction not being resolved, affecting matches coming to Chennai as well. TN has been one of the better developed states irrespective of the politics, due to the corporate and small business. But it appears cricket is not going beyond Chennai and Chennai itself is losing value, which is a big concern.
