Some members had asked Srinivasan to quit: BCCI sources to NDTV

BCCI sources also say that 'the problem is that 3/4th majority is needed to oust the BCCI president' and that 'even if 7-8 members support Srinivasan, change won't be possible.'

Under fire for probe into his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan's alleged role in spot-fixing, N Srinivasan had said that he had not been asked to resign as president of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Sources within the Board however revealed that some members 'had practically told him to quit.'

NDTV has learnt that several members had either wanted or had gone to the extent of telling Srinivasan to step down as chief of BCCI. This comes in sharp contrast to his Sunday's statement that the Board was united and that no one in BCCI had asked him to step down. (Related read: Eden Gardens' crowd boos Srinivasan)

"I wish to ensure to the cricketing world that this is completely untrue and there's unity in the BCCI. And I've not been asked by anybody to resign. To the contrary, my support is complete and I refuse to yield into unfair and motivated attacks. I intend to continue my duties as president of the BCCI." Srinivasan had said in a press conference in Kolkata on Sunday. (Read full report here)

BCCI sources though further say that 'the problem is that 3/4th majority is needed to oust the BCCI president' and that 'even if 7-8 members support Srinivasan, change won't be possible.' (Also read: No law for son-in-law in ICC's code of ethics)

Srinivasan on his part had also said that there was no question of him resigning as he had not done anything wrong and that he wasn't accused of anything."

Meanwhile, BCCI vice-President and a member of the Board's Disciplinary Committee Arun Jaitley on Monday promised "tough action" against anyone found guilty of involvement in the spot-fixing scandal that shook the IPL. (Read)

Jaitley, who is also a member of IPL Governing Council, said a free and fair investigation would be conducted within a stipulated deadline.

"The Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) of BCCI is looking into all these matters," was Jaitley's reaction when asked about the spot-fixing scandal.

"The Supreme Court has given it (BCCI) a 15-day time limit. It will give its report which will come up before the Disciplinary Committee. Be rest assured we are going to take tough action (against anyone found guilty)," he said.
