Ranchi:

Former India wicket-keeper Syed Kirmani on Saturday asked for formulation of stringent laws to curb betting in cricket.

"There should be stringent laws to prevent betting in cricket," Kirmani, who was here to attend a function organised by a company, said while expressing disappointment at the happenings involving the gentleman's game.

The wicket-keeper batsman, however, did not demand resignation of N Srinivasan and left the decision on the beleaguered BCCI president following enormous pressure on him to step down, saying it was upto him to decide.

Srinivasan is facing mounting pressure to quit from his post in the wake of the arrest of his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan on charges of betting in IPL.
