Board of Control for Cricket in India president N Srinivasan addressed a press conference on Sunday, clarifying his stance on the betting allegations levelled against his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and his possible resignation. Meiyappan was suspended by the BCCI for all cricket-related activities on Sunday morning.
Over the past few days there have been calls for Srinivasan to resign on moral grounds. "I have not been asked by anybody in the board to resign and it is wrong on the part of the media to suggest so. My support in the Board is complete and I have not contemplated resignation. I will not shirk from my duties however difficult they may be," said Srinivasan.
"The last few days have been difficult for the BCCI and me as the president of the board. The Board will act without fear or favour and punish any player or official that have breached IPL or BCCI regulations," said Srinivasan. He also added that the report on the spot-fixing trio (Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan) would be issued on time.
