An overwhelming number of people who have responded to an online poll in a popular cricket website want embattled BCCI president N. Srinivasan to resign from his post after the Supreme Court asked him to quit yesterday.

According to the online response in 'Cricinfo' to a question whether N. Srinivasan should quit, close to 90 per cent of people (14524 persons) had replied in the affirmative by noon today.

Just over 7 per cent (1177) want him to stay on while the remaining (531 or just over 3 cent) want him to wait for the court's order that is expected to be delivered tomorrow.

The Supreme Court bench headed by Justice A K Patnaik came down heavily on N. Srinivasan yesterday, asking him to step down for a free and fair probe in the IPL betting and spot fixing scandal involving his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and some cricketers.
