Chennai, Mar 26: Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) President N Srinivasan, who had a cataract surgery Wednesday, continued to remain silent on the Supreme Court observation that he should step down for a fair probe into IPL fixing scandal.
Srinivasan’s legal counsel P S Raman met him at his residence but declined to speak on the issue.
“He (Srinivasan) had a cataract operation in the other eye this morning. I have come to meet him because of that. It is only a courtesy call”, he told reporters.
When asked specifically whether Srinivasan was contemplating to step down in view of the Supreme Court observation, he refused to comment.
It is also learnt that BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel, who was in the United Arab Emirates to oversee the arrangements for the upcoming Indian Premier League, has cut short his visit and is expected to meet Srinivasan during the day to decide the future course of action.
Srinivasan’s continued silence has raised speculation that he may not resign immediately but may wait for the hearing to resume tomorrow before taking a final decision.
