Krishnamachari Srikkanth, Chairman of Selectors, Indian Cricket Team, to open NASSCOM EMERGEOUT Conclave Chennai on June 7, 2011
In his heyday, the swashbuckling opener Krishnamachari Srikkanth used to enthrall fans with his unconventional hits to the fence. In a memorable innings in Chepauk (The M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai), he carved 123 against the pace attack of Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, and the like, who had no answers or a field to his shots. In his innings as Chairman of Selectors, Indian Cricket Team, he has played a glorious innings that saw India emerge as T20 champions in its inagural edition and now the World Champions in 2011. If Mahendra Singh Dhoni is his find as a selector, he had that hand in Sachin Tendulkar’s debut too. Sachin played for India first under his captaincy.
He now runs Careers.com, a Web startup and is opening the NASSCOM EMERGEOUT Conclave Chennai on June 7, 2011 as a keynote speaker. He will expand upon “Building Leadership for the Next Generation IT Innovative Companies.”
