The petitioner in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing case and the face of the anti N Srinivasan camp Aditya Verma on Monday expressed his happiness after Supreme Court decided not to reinstate the Tamil Nadu strongman in BCCI chief’s post till the Mudgal committee submits its final report.

“The BCCI plea had only one motive: to get Srinivasan back into the board by hook or crook and make him eligible for the post of President another three-year term in the next AGM later this month. What is going on in the BCCI is highly undemocratic,” Verma was quoted as saying in a press release.

“The BCCI has one-point programme: to look after the interest of one man and not the game. I am happy that the Honourable Court has not reinstated Srinivasan. The BCCI might try it again but we are going to oppose it,” Verma added.

The apex court on Monday granted Mudgal commission’s appeal for an extension of two months to submit the final report in the IPL betting and spot fixing scandal during the sixth edition of the cash-rich league.
