Why should I ask Dhoni to resign: N Srinivasan

Chennai: Refusing to talk about Mahendra Singh Dhoni's role in his company India Cements, BCCI's President-in-exile N Srinivasan made it clear that the Indian captain would not be asked to resign despite questions about conflict of interest being raised against him.

Srinivasan, who is also the ICC Chairman, declined comments on the IPL spot-fixing scandal, which is being heard in the Supreme Court right now after Justice Mudgal Committee submitted its investigative report on the matter.

"The matter is in the court. I cannot speak on this," Srinivasan told reporters on the sidelines of an ICC function.

The Tamil Nadu strongman was even more curt when it came to answering questions on Dhoni, who is an employee of India Cements besides being the captain of the IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings - owned by the company.

Supreme Court has made scathing comments on the issue of conflict of interest in the case of both Dhoni and Srinivasan.

"Why should I ask him to resign?" Srinivasan shot back when asked whether Dhoni would be asked to step down.

Asked what was Dhoni's role in India Cements, Srinivasan was once again curtly said, "Why should I tell you."

Srinivasan is under immense pressure to give up his position in the BCCI in the wake of the Mudgal Committee's observations on his role in the scandal.

The committee, while giving a clean chit to Srinivasan personally, has observed that the BCCI chief turned a blind eye to the wrongdoings in the league.
