An ultimatum has allegedly been delivered to N Srinivasan, the powerful head of India's top and world's richest cricketing body. "Either you go or we go,' is reportedly what the five vice-presidents of the Board of Control for Cricket in India or BCCI have told Mr Srinivasan, whose son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan was arrested on May 24 on charges of betting on Indian Premier League (IPL) matches.
Among the vice-presidents who have taken on the chief is BJP leader Arun Jaitley who heads the Delhi and District Cricket Association. ""You'll hear something significant today," he said this morning.
However, sources say, Mr Srinivasan remains adamant that he will not resign despite the scandal based on police allegations of betting and spot-fixing during the recently-concluded sixth edition of IPL, the massively-popular Twenty20 league, which ended on May 26 with the Mumbai Indians winning the annual tournament.
