Why did the <a href="/tags/BCCI/post" target="_blank">BCCI</a> hide it? At that time only, the BCCI should have taken action against the Chennai Super Kings," said Lele.<br /> <br /> "Now Mr Srinivasan has no excuse. He should be sacked if he doesn't go now," he added.<br /> <br /> Srinivasan is drawing flak from all quarters for not stepping down even as his son-in-law and CSK Team Principal Gurunath Meiyappan remains behind bars for alleged involvement in betting.<br /> <br /> Lele said along with Srinivasan, his franchise <a href="/tags/Chennai-Super-Kings/post" target="_blank">Chennai Super Kings</a> should also be "removed".<br /> <br /> "Mr Srinivasan along with his team, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) should be removed. I think that the franchise is in danger. It should be removed [from the IPL] now," Lele told '<em>Times Now'</em>.<br /> <br /> Asked if IPL Chairman <a href="/tags/Rajeev-Shukla/post" target="_blank">Rajeev Shukla</a> or other BCCI officials could have also been aware of Meiyappan's involvement in the spot-fixing scandal, Lele said, "No no, they may not have been aware. If a letter comes to Srinivasan, he is a kind of a person who won't tell anyone. He may be the only person knowing about it.<br /> <br /> "I guess, no one else was aware, otherwise some action would have been taken. Srinivasan is the only one responsible," said Lele.<br /> <br /> Meanwhile, Shukla insisted that there has been no "new development" as far as the ongoing scandal was concerned.<br /> <br /> "There is no new development in the IPL. As and when there is anything new, you (media) will be informed," said Shukla.
