''BCCI should have in fact, removed Srinivasan from the post or Srinivasan could have himself resigned. But, when neither of these happened, the Supreme Court had to take this decision,'' said Ali. There were criminal charges against Srinivasan along with some serious allegations. Hence, it was inevitable.
With the Supreme Court having made their decision, the BCCI are helpless as well. If the Supreme Court has said something, there is no remedy. Where can one challenge? You can only plead. Had the BCCI been strong and dismissed him, things could have been better. Now, the court has asked Sunil Gavaskar to take over the BCCI reigns.
The former Indian great, Sunil Gavaskar has reportedly said that he would be honoured to be the new BCCI head. The ball is in Gavaskar's court. If he wants to, he can reject it as well. Ali said, ''The court cannot force anybody to take such positions. But, if the Court has thought of Gavaskar for such a position, it is an honour for him, as it means that the court believes in his credentials.''
