Kolkata, May 26: Hours before the IPL final match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI), BCCI chief N Srinivasan held a press conference in Kolkata on Sunday, May 26.

Overruling all speculations regarding his resignation, Srinivasan said, "The TV channels have been carrying news without any basis. No revolt in the BCCI. I have not been asked by anyone to resign. I will continue as president."

The BCCI chief also reiterated that a committee would probe him along with his tainted son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan. Srinivasan was quoted as saying, "The BCCI will act without fear or favour if the circumstances warrant to punish any players, team or franchise in the spot-fixing scandal."

Speaking further about Meiyappan, Srinivasan said, "With regards to Gurunath Meiyappan - the legal process has already started. The BCCI has already suspended him."

"A commission with at least one independent member will be formed to look into the way Meiyappan worked. The commission will also look into whether Meiyappan is the owner of the CSK. The management of the RR will also be subject to a similar investigation," added the BCCI president.

It was reported that Srinivasan was under pressure to resign from his post ever since Meiyappan's name cropped in IPL spot fixing scandal. Meiyappan has already been arrested by Mumbai Police.

The fixing scandal busted in Mumbai when Delhi police arrested three Rajasthan Royals players -- S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila, Ankeet Chavan and many other bookies over their alleged involvement in fixing scandal.
