02:15 PM: Former India captains Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble and Krishnamacharis Srikkanth have refused to give their opinions on the whole controversy till the Supreme Court judgement comes out. They say it is a matter of sub judice, reports Times Now.

Dravid, speaking to the reporters, said that he would not like to comment on the matter now since it is still subjudice. When asked whether the judgement will affect the sport in the country, Dravid was of the opinion that the sport is too great to be affected by people participating in it. He said the sport will go on.

Kumble too reiterated Dravid’s viewpoint saying that the court should be allowed to take its own course.

12:33 PM: Harish Salve continues the arguments in court and he is alleging that Dhoni is guilty of giving a false statement to the Mudgal panel. This is being reported by CNN IBN. Earlier, he had also spoken about the allegations of conflict of interest, by saying that the Indian captain is an India Cements employee.


12:23 PM: The Supreme Court hears the counsel for the  petitioners. Now, the reports suggest that they have asked the court to bar Chennai Super Kings from playing the IPL 2014.


11:55 AM: Bringing an analogy from cricket into the whole scenario. Shishir Hattangadi, a former cricketer tweets:

11:35 AM: And through all that, Amul comes up with a cartoon. Have a look below:


11:16 AM: Here are some tweets from PTI. The BCCI have said they will carry out an enquiry with the recommendations of the Mudgal committee in mind. All this coming from the hearing that is going on in the Supreme Court. But, still there is no word from N Srinivasan. Times Now reports that he is currently meeting some of the India Cements officials who are close to him.


11:03 AM: The Supreme Court has reportedly said that, they will “think hard for the benefit of cricket and pass and order.” This has been reported by NDTV.


11:00 AM: You can read more about the proposal that has been given by the BCCI to the Supreme Court here. Remember, Srinivasan has offered to ‘step-aside.’


10:58 AM: Here is something from PTI.

The proposals were taken by the Supreme Court and the arguments have begun in court. The SC has said that they will take a decision in the interests of the sport. The BCCI has also said it is ready to apply some of the recommendations of the Mudgal report.


10:40 AM: The word going around is that the BCCI have told the Supreme Court that N Srinivasan will step aside from the post. This is while there will be a “time bound enquiry” into the whole controversy. However, they have said that Srinivasan should be permitted to continue in his international role. That should mean the ICC role.


10:32 AM: The proceedings in the Supreme Court are to begin in some time. Srinivasan is currently in Chennai, at his residence, even as the SC will decide on his fate.


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 have asked him to resign and asked him why he was sticking to his chair. The Supreme Court’s main observation was that if there is to be a fair probe into the IPL 2013 spot-fixing controversy, then he had to step down. These were strong observations from the Apex court, but the thing is that Srinivasan had remained adamant and despite being given time till today, he hasn’t moved away. Even now, he sticks to his post.

Here is a timeline of the whole story.
