10:22 am Within few minutes from now the Supreme Court will resume hearing on the IPL-fixing issue.

==============================================================

Two days back Supreme Court made it clear that the BCCI president should step down to enable a fair investigation in the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting scandal.

The court, which had on Tuesday asked the BCCI chief as to why he was sticking to the chair, wanted Srinivasan to quit on his own, otherwise it would pronounce its own decision if he doesn`t quit.

The powerful BCCI chief has continued to remain mum on the SC observation that he should step down from his post.

N Srinivasan on Wednesday said that he won`t quit from his post and wait for the apex court order due on Thursday.

TV news channels quoted a defiant Srinivasan as saying, “I have done no wrong and no one can force me out of BCCI."
