N Srinivasan has always been making the headlines of late, primarily for all the wrong reasons, and things were no different at the presentation ceremony of the 2015 Cricket World Cup after Australia beat New Zealand to clinch their fifth title.
Initially it was thought that ICC president Mustafa Kamal would hand over the trophy to the winning captain, but it was not to be with the premier cricket body's chairman Srinivasan doing the honours at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
This act of Srinivasan might have breached the ICC rules as well, but then he is no stranger to controversy, the most recent one being the IPL spot-fixing scandal.
If Srinivasan had any illusions about his reputation, they were surely put to rest during the World Cup final presentation ceremony, as he was booed by a number of spectators inside the stadium.
Twitter went abuzz as the MCG crowd booed Srinivasan during the presentation ceremony. Some of the interesting tweets can be read below:
Australia wins the top prize for cricket... And Srini for shamelessness.
