Srinivasan, Jagmohan Dalmiya, BCCI, IPL spot-fixing scandal
Jagmohan Dalmiya to take care of day-to-day affairs of BCCI. BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale
and Treasurer Ajay Shirke asked to withdraw their resignation. Despite mounting pressure, BCCI
president N Srinivasan refused to resign on Sunday (May 2), but agreed to "step aside" till the
board's internal probe into the IPL spot-fixing controversy is over.
Jagmohan Dalmiya had almost become a non-entity after losing control of the BCCI in 2005.
But as the clamour for N Srinivasan's ouster grew in the wake of the IPL spot-fixing scandal, the CAB president suddenly became an important player again. After the resignations of Sanjay Jagdale, Ajay Shirke and Rajiv Shukla, when Srinivasan's
position grew even shakier, he sought Dalmiya's help to work out a compromise formula."Tell me why should I resign? It is not me who has done anything wrong," Srinivasan reportedly
said in his opening remarks. "
But Mr. Dalmiya said after the meeting, “Mr. Srinivasan continues to be the president. He has
not resigned and only stepped aside. My role has no nomenclature but I will be doing the job of
the acting president.”
N. Srinivasan ‘stepped aside’ temporarily as president of the Board of Control for Cricket in
India at an emergency working committee meeting here on Sunday.
