'Srinivasan's position hopelessly untenable'

Following CSK official Gurunath Meiyappan's arrest, Sharda Ugra, Jayaditya Gupta and Nitin Sundar discuss possible measures the BCCI can take to clean up the system in the midst of the IPL's current credibility crisis

I support Sharda Ugra in her assertion that Mr. Srinivasan's position as president of BCCI is untenable. As the president of BCCI, Mr. Srinivasan is fully "Accountable" for anything he has NOT done to ensure that Cricket does not become a victim of "Bookies" via its players & owners of IPL. Mr. S cannot keep saying "I have done nothing wrong--" when he has NOT done his job properly. It is not what he has done wrong but it is what he has NOT done right. He failed in his duties to keep the game clean. By pretending everything is "Fay Dinkum", it does not cut it. Not only that under his own watchful eyes his Son-in-Law has been caught red handed as the owner of IPL . Where is the Accountability. As the President of BCCI, the Buck stops at his level. So he must resign for failing to do his job.

@Hari Narayanan - Stop acting like a typical CSK fan always and think about Indian cricket and where it has gone, otherwise soon we'll left with no cricket at all.

Cricket has survived Cronje, Azharuddin and Jadeja already. It will survive this too and come stronger.

While, we are definitely concerned that the game should go on and the corrupt should be evicted there are some who seem to be on the "Stop IPL, and Ban CSK Agenda". Need to investigate their motivations and figure out what are they all about. Even they are not above board now!!

Is this about Gurunath or Srinivasan, lets be objective! I see Srinivasan's name more on News headlines than Gurunath! Also, this investigated by Mumbai police not by BCCI.
