The Court want Srinivasan to step down in order to enable a fair investigation into matchfixing at the IPL and say that they will be forced to pass an order if he does not comply. However, according to Indian news sites, BCCI vice-president Shivial Yadav has said Srinivasan will not step down. “BCCI will wait for the top court’s order to decide its future course of action,” Yadav told NDTV.com. Srinivasan is maintaining that he has done nothing wrong and that he can not be forced out of the BCCI.
