Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: The Supreme Court hearing held today on a petition filed by Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) against BCCI president N Srinivasan’s candidature was inconclusive.
The next hearing will be held on October 7, till then Srinivasan’s fate hangs in balance.
The apex court also went ahead to say that the BCCI has lost all its credibility and that something is seriously wrong with the board.
The court has ordered that Srinivasan will continue as BCCI President but will not participate in any IPL issue. It has also asked BCCI and Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) to sort out scope and nature of committee to probe IPL spot fixing.
Till a conclusive decision comes out, Srinivasan cannot take charge of the board.
Earlier, CAB secretary Aditya Verma had appealed Supreme Court to bar Srinivasan from contesting BCCI presidential election and also issue an interim ban preventing him from being a member of any committee of the cricket board.
The petition was filed on the ground that his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan is being probed for placing bets in the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches.
The apex court allowed Srinivasan to contest the election but said that he cannot discharge his duties.
On Sunday, Srinivasan was elected as the BCCI chief for the third time unopposed.
He later told media that while the other newly elected members will assume charges, he was awaiting Supreme Court’s order.
