BCCI treasurer Ajay Shirke, speaking about N. Srinivasan’s continuance as BCCI president on Wednesday said, “I am a very junior member of the Board. Srinivasan is higher in stature and age. I don’t think I need to advise him. The question is about the credibility of the Board.”

“We have to instill the confidence of people in the Board. Here the decision is a moral one and that is a very individual decision,” he added.

Shortly after IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla demanded that Mr. Srinivasan “disassociate” from the inquiry against his son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings Team in the wake of IPL spot-fixing scandal, Mr. Shirke said the two senior members of the Board have just expressed their own opinions.

“I have not heard what Shukla has said because I was in a meeting. They are very senior official of the Board and have expressed their opinion but it is up to Mr Srinivasan to take a call,” Mr. Shirke told ‘Times Now.’

Meanwhile, DDCA vice-president Chetan Chauhan begged to differ.

“For the good of cricket, Mr. Srinivasan should step down. Once the inquiry is completed he can come back. Crores of cricket fans have been hurt by this scandal. Their faith needs to be restored,” said the former India opener.
