The Supreme Court said that N Srinivasan cannot head BCCI till he comes out clean in a probe conducted against him and 12 others, including India capped cricketers, whose names have been mentioned by Justice Mudgal Committee report in the IPL betting and spot fixing scandal.

In a letter to BCCI acting president Shivlal Yadav, RCA Officiating Secretary KK Sharma said that they are unaware of who is instructing the counsel appearing for the Board in the Supreme Court.

"We have noticed the observations of the Supreme Court during hearing. We are unaware as to who is instructing the counsel appearing for the Board in the said matter. The issues have never been discussed at a Board Meeting and no Board Meeting has been convened in this regard," Sharma said in his letter.

Sharma further said, "We do not want that the stance taken by the Board should damage the reputation of the Board and Players and therefore we request you to convene an Emergent working committee meeting of the Board on April 20 at the Headquarters of the Board in Mumbai to discuss the matters pending before the Supreme Court as the said matter is now listed for April 22.”

"We feel that the Board Counsel should be instructed about Board decision and should not take instructions from certain individuals,” he added on his letter.

Besides RCA, a few other state associations of the BCCI have also shot similar letters to the Board.

"At least five or six affiliated members of the BCCI have written letters to BCCI on similar lines," a top BCCI official said.
