New Delhi: Former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi on Tuesday proposed the name of veteran administrator IS Bindra (in pic) as a possible successor to N Srinivasan, who has rejected demands for his resignation as BCCI president in the wake of arrest of his son-in-law on charges of betting in IPL.

"Indian cricket now needs a leader that everyone can trust. It needs someone whose appointment would create unlimited confidence and for me, there is one man who stands out as being capable of uniting Indian cricket in the short term and establishing a legacy to serve the game honourably for many years to come. That man is Inderjit Bindra," Modi wrote in his blog.

"He is a man with a brilliant record as a cricket administrator and a man of unqualified dignity. He would restore instant belief for everyone in the game. He is exactly the type of person who that is needed right now to help rescue Indian cricket," he added.
