Former Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Shashank Manohar yesterday rued that there was no one in the Board to take on N Srinivasan who is facing the heat over the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.

Srinivasan, who had ignored repeated calls for his resignation, has been stripped of his presidential powers by the Supreme Court till he is cleared of alleged wrongdoings in the scandal. “The Board lacks leaders to take on Srinivasan who is shamelessly and stubbornly sticking to his chair. Nothing has moved in the last one year.
The outbreak of the scandal happened in May 2013 and we are currently in April 2014,” Manohar told PTI from Nagpur. Manohar wants someone to get up and raise the issue at the Emergent Working Committee meeting which has been convened on April 20 at the Board’s headquarters in Mumbai. —
