New Delhi: Interim President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Sunil Gavaskar, sent a letter to the Supreme Court (SC) on Friday demanding his salary for running the Indian cricket board, according to the sources.

According to media sources the `little master` drafted the letter directly to the SC without going through any legal procedure.

The SC had installed batting legend Sunil Gavaskar as the interim head of India`s troubled cricket board on May 28th 2014 after forcing out the scandal-tainted N Srinivasan from office.

The SC received Gavaskar`s letter just a day after he celebrated his 65th birthday.

Under the surveillance of Gavaskar, the Indian Premier League`s seventh edition had taken place successfully in Dubai and India.

However, inquiry on the IPL-fixing case has been under investigation. Under retired Justice Mukul Mudgal the penal is now investigating on the 13 `very important personalities`, whose names figured in a sealed envelope submitted to the SC on February 10 by the same Mudgal panel.
