New Delhi: Sanjay Jagdale and Ajay Shirke on Saturday welcomed IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla's decision to step down from the post in view of the recent controversies surrounding the T20 league and said it's time the credibility of Indian cricket was restored.
The resignation of Shukla, who is also a Union Minister, comes as a severe setback to President N Srinivasan who has already been isolated by his team of officials, two of whom --secretary Sanjay Jagdale and treasurer Ajay Shirke -- have already quit.
"That is his decision. He is at the eye of storm. Perhaps he must have realised the gravity of the situation. It's never too late. But the real issue is how Indian cricket moves ahead and the credibility of BCCI is restored," Shirke said when asked to comment on Shukla's resignation.
