London: Former BCCI president IS Bindra appealed to the directors on the ICC's executive board and its Development International Board to probe N Srinivasan for allegedly violating the Ethics Code of the game's governing body.
In an open letter, which was released to the media in London, Bindra pointed out the clauses that states that the directors should not use their position with the ICC for personal advantage or gain.
"It gives me great pain to write this letter, especially because the person who is at the centre of the controversy happens to be heading the same board of which I have been a member for the last 38 years and served as its President," he wrote in his letter.
"However I have always believed that the game is greater than any individual and the truth must come to light," Bindra, a former advisor with the ICC, added.
Bindra said Clause 2.1 of the Code clearly states that the directors shall act in an ethical manner and shall not engage in conduct that gives the appearance of impropriety and Clause 4.1 makes it abundantly clear that the directors shall not use their position with the ICC for personal advantage or gain, including having any material and direct personal involvement with ICC broadcasters, such as acceptance of material payments from such broadcasters.
Bindra also criticised the ICC spokesperson, who had reportedly said that the ICC has no objection to "stepped aside" BCCI President, N Srinivasan taking part in its Annual Conference as Director or in any other capacity.
Bindra said he and numerous cricket lovers across the globe have reservations about Srinivasan attending the London meetings.
