New Delhi: Players, staff and administrators loyal to N Srinivasan camp in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) may be shown the door, according to some media reports.

According to a Hindustan Times report, team director Ravi Shastri is the first to be in the line of fire.

BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya believes that Shastri has been pro-Srinivasan and that  he also doesn't see the former star cricketer as a long-term member of the team.

Dalmiya is keen on having Sourav Ganguly as a part of the team, report said, adding that Shahtri could soon be fired from the job.  

It should be noted that just after the IPL spot-fixing scandal in 2013, Shastri had praised the-then BCCI chief Srinivasan saying 'he's been a terrific administrator'.

Shastri had taken over as the team director during the ODIs in England last year.

The HT Report further said  that Dalmiya is of the view that former skipper Ganguly knows how to win abroad as he is India's most successful captain away from home.

"Shastri has not got us the results we wanted, so we could ask Ganguly to step in," BCCI source were quoted as saying, adding that 'it is unlikely Shastri will go to Bangladesh in June'.

Quoting Sources, the report said that it is still unclear whether BCCI would rope in Ganguly before the Bangladesh series.

Ganguly has been approached for the posts of high-performance manager and team director, it said.

Former India captains, Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid, may also be offered roles within the national setup in various capacities.
