As the demand for BCCI president N Srinivasan's resignation grows, strong voices for resolving this crisis grows from within the BCCI. On Friday, BCCI joint secretary Anurag Thakur said Srinivasan may soon convene a meeting of the board to discuss the fallout of the IPL spot-fixing scam. "I have spoken to the president and the secretary (Sanjay Jagdale) and requested both to call a meeting where every member should get a chance to present his views and discuss the punishment for those guilty," Mr. Thakur told reporters in New Delhi. "A meeting has to be called by the president and secretary. It's a not a numbers game. Very soon, the BCCI secretary and the president will call a meeting, we have to wait," he said. "If they decide to have a meeting then I don't think there should be any problem in going ahead with it," he added. Asked whether Mr. Srinivasan should quit, Mr. Thakur was evasive. "Everybody wants a fair probe and that is why we have two retired judges and the BCCI secretary probing the matter. When two judges are there, you can be assured that the inquiry would be fair," he said. Mr. Thakur, however, admitted that Indian cricket's image has taken a massive beating. "No doubt cricket is shaken because it is a question of the faith of crores," he said.
