Former ICC chief Dalmiya returns as BCCI president

NEW DELHI (AP) -- Former International Cricket Council chief Jagmohan Dalmiya has returned as president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

Dalmiya emerged the only candidate Monday after India's Supreme Court restricted ICC Chairman Narainswamy Srinivasan from seeking another term as BCCI president while he continues to hold a stake in Indian Premier League team the Chennai Super Kings.

Dalmiya, who was the ICC president from 1997-2000 and BCCI president from 2001-2004, was elected unopposed Monday during an annual general meeting in Chennai.

The Supreme Court barred Srinivasan from seeking re-election in January following a conflict of interest case filed by the provincial Cricket Association of Bihar in regard to a spot-fixing probe against Srinivasan's son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings team principal Gurunath Meiyappan.
