Dalmiya relinquishes twin posts
Jagmohan Dalmiya
Dalmiya's influence is waning
Jagmohan Dalmiya has resigned his presidency of the Asian Cricket Council and the Afro-Asian Cricket Cooperation.

It comes after Sharad Pawar ousted Dalmiya's supporters to run the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

Dalmiya chose to resign before waiting for Pawar to nominate candidates of his own for the two presidencies.

In a resignation letter, Dalmiya said: "I feel that it is only appropriate that I tender my resignation with immediate effect from both positions."

He went on: "I had the privilege of being the President of the ACC from 2001-02 and the President of the AACC from 2004-05."

Addressing the BCCI, he added: "I can assure you of my full support and cooperation as and when required on any matter concerning Indian or international cricket."

Dalmiya's influence, once so strong on all matters cricket-related, appears to be dwindling rapidly.

His CV includes a spell as president of the International Cricket Council and two decades in which he was the most powerful man in Indian cricket.

Pawar became BCCI president last Tuesday.
