'I have no hope left in BCCI': After CAB snub, Aditya Verma alleges Manohar used him in battle against Srinivasan

New Delhi: The secretary of unsanctioned Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) Aditya Verma alleged on Friday that top BCCI officials, including president Shashank Manohar, "used him in their battle against N Srinivasan" and dumped the IPL spot-fixing petitioner after their "purpose was served".

The face of anti Srinivasan movement, Verma has found out that rival cricket association from the state Bihar Cricket Association (BCA) secretary Mrityunjay Tiwary was invited to attend the board's working committee meeting.

"Today I feel used by BCCI president Shashank Manohar. I have no hesitation in revealing that he did support me fully when I fought against N Srinivasan and exposed the corruption in Indian cricket. He made promise to help Cricket Association of Bihar's affiliation case. Now I find that some of these administrators wear a facade when they are not in power.

"Everyone is the same," a dejected Verma told PTI after finding that BCCI has virtually "dumped him" in favour of the rival association.

In fact, BCCI's GM (Game Development) Ratnakar Shetty had met the BCA officials and not CAB during his visit to the state.

Verma said that he had a lot of faith in Manohar but can now only look up to the Supreme Court after the Vidarbha lawyer overlooked his plea.

"I find it very strange. This was the same man (Manohar), who told me that Professor Shetty is N Srinivasan's man and after that he is now working with the same man. I have no hope left in BCCI after today," concluded Verma.
