N Srinivasan should have resigned long back, says I S Bindra
New Delhi: Former BCCI president I S Bindra feels current chief N Srinivasan should have resigned long time back and said it was his continuation at the helm of affairs which brought Indian cricket to a "sorry state".
The Supreme Court made observations yesterday that Srinivasan should step down from his post for a fair probe into the IPL fixing scandal and Bindra said he has been asking his resignation for the last one year.
"My view was very clear from last one year. In the first meeting in Chennai I had said the same thing. I have been writing in my blog. He should have resigned long time back. He decided to continue and now it has reached a stage where the Supreme Court had to intervene," Bindra said.
"It is a sad day for Indian cricket, Indian cricket has been brought to this far by Srinivasan and some of his friends in the Board. It is unfortunate for Indian cricket and it gets bad name for Indian cricket, such sorry state that highest court had to intervene," he added.
Despite pressure mounting on him, the beleaguered Srinivasan remained mum on the Supreme Court observation and is exploring various legal options. He had a series of meetings with legal experts during the day though no official word as to what he plans to do has come out yet.
