If it weren't for the sharp suits that Narayanaswamy Srinivasan wears, he could be mistaken for a temple priest.
The smear of red on his forehead adds an avuncular quality to his solemn, fair-complexioned face.
The deeply religious Srinivasan is also believed to often look to heaven for help.
They say he has his personal astrologer draw an auspicious triangle on the field every time his company's squad in the Indian Premier League, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), plays and he believes that this has helped the team become the most consistent side since the tournament began in 2008.
