New Delhi: Former BCCI president Shashank Manohar has charged Srinivasan of running the Board affairs from the backdoor and made an appeal to "all members of the Board to rise to the occasion and prevent the Board and the Game from being further destroyed."
Manohar added in a press release: "Mr Srinivasan, the President of BCCI has been prohibited from participating in the functioning of the Board since last several months.
In spite of being prohibited he continues to run the Board which is amply evident from the Board functioning. For example the allotment of International Matches to Centers by flouting the long practice of rotation adopted by the Board," he said.
"The image of the Board is tarnished by the actions and the attitude of Mr Srinivasan. The gentleman's game as the game of cricket has long been known and the reputation of the Board is at its lowest due to the egotistic and autocratic behaviour of one individual.
"The Board and the game of Cricket is bigger than any individual and it is the responsibility and duty of every individual connected with the game to preserve the dignity and integrity of the Game," he added.
