Mar 28, 2014

With that, we sign out from our live blog. Keep an eye on CricketCountry for further details.

 

Remember, Srinivasan still owns the Super Kings.

 

Gavaskar will be looking after only the IPL. Everything else will be handled by Senior Vice-President Shivlal Yadav.

 

     

      Mukul Mudgal has commented that Gavaskar will do good for cricket.

 

11. 31: India Cements employees can play or commentate, but not be linked in any other way to BCCI.   11.27: The Supreme Court has also said that Gavaskar will decide whether Sundar Raman will continue as IPL CEO.

The BCCI lawyer has said that they are “very pleased”. This was apparently what they had proposed.

 

Folks, this is an unprecedented incident in the history of BCCI. Never before has a President been asked to step aside.

 

11.13: Srinivasan needs to step aside till ICC spot-fixing scandal is fixed.

 

11.10: IPL 7 goes on. Royals and Super Kings can play.

 

11.05:  Sunil Gavaskar to discharge function as BCCI President for IPL 7.

 

You’ve guessed it right: still no update.

 

Still no update. Meanwhile, why don’t you read Arunabha Sengupta’s article on what the Supreme Court’s proposal means for Sunil Gavaskar?

 

What will happen to the IPL? Will it be scrapped altogether? Will it go on with six teams, leaving 50-odd cricketers without a franchise? Will there be another auction? Do stay tuned in.

 

Remember that this is not only about Srinivasan. This may lead to the biggest shift of power in world cricket in recent past. Or may not. We will soon find out.

 

Spare a thought for the Indian cricket team, however. They have a match to play today; they will probably be practicing right now as the cricket fraternity is waiting for the moment.

 

No verdict till now, folks. Keep tuned.

 

10:25 AM: Also, you can read what IS Bindra, the former BCCI President had to say. To read his column on the whole affair, click here.   The hearing is to begin in five minutes from now. Do stay tuned for all the updates.


10: 20 AM: Late last night, there was a report that stated that the BCCI is going to reject all the proposals. Our report on CricketCountry said, “The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has reportedly decided to moot the prospect of batting legend Sunil Gavaskar as the interim President after the Supreme Court’s verdict demanding the current occupant N Srinivasan to step down from the board in the wake of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing allegations.   According to NDTV, the BCCI functions on its own accord and an outsider like the former Indian captain Gavaskar while reports came in earlier in the day about the much maligned N Srinivasan willing to relinquish his duties as BCCI chairman.”   You can read the whole report here.


Welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of the Supreme Court’s hearing on the Mudgal report on the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing and betting controversy. On March 25, the Supreme Court of India gave BCCI President N Srinivasan an ultimatum. They had asked him to resign and asked him why he was sticking to his chair. They gave him two days’ time.

 

On March 27, i.e. yesterday, the Supreme Court of India came down whipping the lash on the BCCI, making some trend-setting proposals to clean-up the mess which is killing the joy of the sport. In a series of proposals, the apex court proposed that till the time the investigation goes on, Sunil Gavaskar should act as the interim chief of the BCCI. Moreover, it was also proposed that no employee or stakeholder of India Cements can be associated with the BCCI in any fashion.

 

In another ground-breaking proposal, the Supreme Court proposed the suspension of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from the 2014 edition of IPL. Harish Salve also alleged Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is also the Vice-President of India Cements, of providing false statements to the Justice Muku Mudgal Committee during investigation pertaining to the spot-fixing scandal.   Meanwhile, catch all the developments of here.
