Chennai: Jun 2, 2013
 
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President N Srinivasan was defiant on reacting to Ajay Shirke’s criticism and said that the former BCCI treasurer is his best friend and he’ll wait for Shirke to comeback.
 
“I do not want to respond to what Shirke said. He is my best friend. Also all members requested Mr. Jagdale and Mr. Shirke to continue. He will let us know tomorrow (by Monday) if he will be back,” Srinivasan said in an interview to NDTV.
 
Srinivasan stepped aside from his post during the Working Committee meeting in Chennai as Jagmohan Dalmiya made a comeback in to the scheme of things as head of Working Group handling the daily affairs of the BCCI.
 
Clarifying about the arrangement made in the board Srinivasan said, “How the board functions is an internal matter. Jagmohan Dalmiya is an experienced administrator. I have been fair by not involving myself in the day-to-day activities in the board.”
 
After the meeting, Punjab Cricket Association Chief IS Bindra lashed out openly at Srinivasan and said that no other member had the guts to ask for Srinivasan’s resignation. “I categorically asked for his resignation. Nobody supported me. They were whispering but they did not have guts to speak out. Nobody else asked for his resignation,” he said.
 
Srinivasan however refused to accept the claim and defended that no one asked for his resignation. “At the meeting IS Bindra did not say I should resign. There was no acrimony at the BCCI meet.”
