An overwhelming number of people who have responded to an online poll in a popular cricket website want embattled Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president N Srinivasan to resign from his post after the Supreme Court asked him to quit yesterday.

 

According to the online response in Cricinfo to a question whether Srinivasan should quit, close to 90 per cent of people (14,524 persons) had replied in the affirmative by noon on Wednesday.

 

Just over seven per cent (1177) want him to stay on while the remaining (531 or just over three cent) want him to wait for the court’s order that is expected to be delivered tomorrow.
