New Delhi: In the backdrop of a spot-fixing scandal that rocked IPL, Sports Minister Ajay Maken on Wednesday said the BCCI should probe the root cause of the problem and suggested that the body should de-link itself from running the cash-rich Twenty20 league to avoid "overlapping of interests".
"As I have said, the BCCI should go into the root cause of the problem. They have to handle the investigation because BCCI is recognised by the ICC to run cricket in India. It is their mandate and their duty. They are foremost responsible," Maken told reporters.
"Suspending five players is not enough. BCCI must come up with a long-term solution for this problem," he added.
