Jagmohan Dalmiya, the interim president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), said that the image of cricket had certainly taken a beating in the recent spot-fixing controversy, but he feels all efforts will made to bring the game back on track. However, he said no decision has been taken on representing BCCI at ICC meeting.

Speaking to his first news conference a day after the row forced Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) chief N Srinivasan to stand down until a probe into the alleged illegal betting is over, Jagmohan Dalmiya said he would make every effort to remove the taint from the game so that "the good name of cricket is retained".

But Dalmiya, who is a former BCCI president, told reporters he didn't have "any medicine that you get an instant result".
