Distressed by the Indian Premier League spot-fixing scam, BCCI Vice President Niranjan Shah on Saturday said the scandal has become increasingly "disgraceful" but stopped short of demanding under-fire President N Srinivasan's resignation.

"It is much regrettable and distressing that the situation is getting aggravated in increasingly disgraceful manner… the matter pertaining resignation of BCCI's president Mr. Srinivasan should rather be a matter between himself and the rules and regulations of the Board," Shah said in a statement.

Srinivasan's adamant stand of sticking to his position despite the controversy, last night prompted Board Treasurer Ajay Shirke and Secretary Sanjay Jagdale to resign in protest.
