Nobody wants to fight Srinivasan: Kirti Azad
Former cricketer Kirti Azad has come down heavily on the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for failing to take strict action against its president N Srinivasan, whose son-in-law Meiyappan has been arrested for alleged links with bookies.

“Everyone is hand in glove. Nobody wants to fight Srinivasan fearing they might not become the next president of the board,” Azad told ANI.

With Srinivasan’s term set to end next year, Arun Jaitley has a chance of becoming the next President.

“I want to ask our politicians, who talk of righteousness, when a minister is tainted directly or indirectly, each of them stands up asking for resignations; is it because of the united alliance with the BCCI that no one seeks Srinivasan's resignation?” Azad asked.

Going by what Azad said one feels sorry for the state of Indian cricket, where, it seems, greater importance is being given to the BCCI's big seat at a time when it is expected that the board is cleaned up.

With all the things that have come to the fore in the recent couple of weeks, it could have been wiser on the part of the president to quit and work for the development of sport, but he has complicated it further by stating that he will not resign.

Despite being put under pressure by the media, Srinivasan will not resign unless being asked to. He has also stated that he has not been asked by the BCCI to resign. Even the IPL fans booed Srinivasan during the presentation of the IPL finals establishing that he has became a hated man in Indian cricket, like the three tainted cricketers from Rajasthan Royals.
