Srinivasan agreed to give up presidency of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) following the arrest of his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan's role in IPL spot-fixing scandal.

"Dalmiya has taken over as interim president. Srinivasan said he cannot resign," Punjab Cricket Association president IS Bindra said after the meeting of the BCCI working committee.

"I questioned the legality of 'interim president' as the BCCI constitution does not permit this," he said.
