“They (BCCI) requested me to chair the meeting and I did so. There were no issues with that. But I have told the board that I do not wish to continue as IPL chairman,” Shukla told IANS.
Shukla, who is also minister of state for parliamentary affairs, quit the IPL two months ago in the wake of the spot-fixing controversy but his resignation was not accepted by interim board chief Jagmohan Dalmiya.
“I took the job for two years and now it is time for someone else. I am sure the BCCI will find a suitable candidate,” said Shukla, who took over from Chirayu Amin as IPL chairman in September 2011.
