Mumbai: The BCCI on Thursday took strong exception to former President Shashank Manohar's attempt to get his name expunged from the legal cases against the Board with Secretary Sanjay Patel saying that the move amounts to shirking responsibility.

"There was no question of affidavit (filed by Manohar in the Bombay Hight Court) being discussed. But (what was discussed) was the case fought by Shashank Manohar in his individual way (capacity) leaving aside the other office bearers and the employees of BCCI. That thing was discussed. Members were not happy with the kind of thing that has happened," said Patel.

"BCCI rules and regulations and memorandum is very clear. The Board is functioning under the superintendence (authority) of the president. The entire Board is together on the issue. That is why, the issue was discussed in the AGM and the members have shown their displeasure," he added.
