The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) vice president Niranjan Shah on Friday admitted that the image of cricket’s governing body has been tarnished a lot, and added that he does not think N Srinivasan will be involved in the day-to-day matters of the board anymore.

Shah told CNN IBN, “I don’t like to give a single comment on Srinivasan. It will be a BCCI decision. We have allowed Srinivasan to put his team in auction. But the questions are being asked after seven years. The BCCI must see what necessary amendments have to be made.”

“I dont know the role of senior vice president Shivlal Yadav. I don’t think Srinivasan will now be involved in BCCI matters after Supreme Court decision,” he added.

Shah said he is happy with Supreme Court’s order to have allowed Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals to continue participating in the seventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

He said, “Very happy to see CSK and RR to participate and the tournament will have all the teams. It is good for the players, and cricket. Everyone will be benefited.”

Shah said all members of the BCCI would need to meet up very soon and decide on critical matters.

“BCCI need to get together and discuss these issues. Whatever necessary ammendements have to be done must be looked into. BCCI is not in good books, something is not going wrong. Image has been tarnished quite a lot,” he said.

Meanwhile, a two-judge panel had warned the BCCI that it will issue an order for Srinivasan’s dismissal on Friday after describing his refusal to quit so far as “nauseating”.  At a dramatic hearing in New Delhi on Thursday, a panel of judges also called for the banning of two teams from this year’s IPL, in a potentially devastating blow to a tournament which begins next month.

The judges also proposed that Gavaskar take over on an interim basis as president, a post the 64-year-old said he was willing to take on.

“As an opening batsman, you must be ready for all kinds of challenges,” AFP quoted Gavaskar as saying, who is the first player to score 10,000 runs in Test match cricket and who is now a TV commentator.
