Former BCCI legal adviser, Ushanath Banerjee, said: “The greed of one person cannot override the reputation and credibility of the national federation.”
Former secretary, JY Lele, said Srinivasan’s days are numbered. “He’s on the backfoot now. The constitution is clear, if you or your family member is involved in any misconduct, you have to go. It need not be proved in a court of law. Had he resigned when his son-in-law (Gurunath Meiyappan) admitted to betting, he would have got a graceful exit,” said Lele.
