Shukla told reporters his decision had been influenced by the resignations of BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale and treasurer Ajay Shirke. “I have decided to quit as IPL chairman,” he was quoted as saying by PTI on Saturday.
“It is a decision I was pondering over for some time. I think it is time to step down. Sanjay Jagdale and Ajay Shirke resigned in the best interest of Indian cricket.”
“I thought this is the right time,” he added.
