New Delhi: Mar 28, 2014

With the Supreme Court deciding not to bar Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from participating in the Indian Premier League (IPL), a relieved Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)  said the interim order was “acceptable” to it and will take necessary steps for its implementation.

The Supreme Court today ordered that Gavaskar should be made the interim president for managing affairs of IPL, while the senior most vice-president — Shivlal Yadav — should take care of the non-IPL affairs of the BCCI.

Hailing the Supreme Court’s decision not to suspend Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from playing in IPL 7, BCCI Vice-President Rajeev Shukla said the order was in the best interest of the game and cricket fans.

“We have no objection to the Supreme Court order. The BCCI lawyers have also said that the order is acceptable. Even Mr Srinivasan had said through the lawyers that he is willing to step aside and after that what court decides will be acceptable to him,” Shukla said.

“The good thing is that all eight teams will play in this year’s IPL. IPL will go on and there will be no hindrance.”

BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel, who is part of the IPL governing council, said that BCCI already has a set up in place for running the IPL and the only question that needed to be sorted out was IPL COO Sundar Raman’s role.

“The only issue is whether Gavaskar would like the services of Sundar Raman. That is what the court stated today,” Patel said. He said he would be meeting Gavaskar soon to work out a plan.

Gavaskar on his part, he was honoured to be given the responsibility and he will “give it his best shot” while discharging duties.

“I am deeply humbled and honoured that the Honourable Supreme Court of India has entrusted me with the job of being the Interim President of the BCCI till the end of IPL 7. Like with my cricket, I will give it my best shot,” Gavaskar said in a statement.
