N Srinivasan, the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, has been under a lot of pressure since the authorities made a spate of arrests related to illegal betting on the tournament earlier this month.

His son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan was arrested for his alleged involvement in the betting syndicate.

“I cannot be bulldozed. I cannot allow the press or others to railroad me. There are a lot of vested interests who don’t want me. I am too straight, I follow the rules,” said Srinivasan after the arrest of Meiyappan.
