The Supreme Court of India on Friday said that the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 will go on and no team will be disqualified. The Supreme Court  had proposed that Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals be suspended from the IPL.

However, while passing its interim order on Friday, the Supreme Court only said that Sunil Gavaskar will take over as BCCI President during the IPL and Srinivasan cannot perform his duties till the case goes on.

The BCCI had cancelled their press conference, which was slated for March 27 in Abu Dhabi, to launch the IPL after the observations of the Supreme Court.

Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals can continue to play.

At a dramatic hearing in New Delhi on Thursday, a panel of judges also called for the banning of two teams from this year’s IPL, in a potentially devastating blow to a tournament which begins next month.

The judges also proposed that Gavaskar take over on an interim basis as president, a post the 64-year-old said he was willing to take on.

“As an opening batsman, you must be ready for all kinds of challenges,” AFP quoted Gavaskar as saying, who is the first player to score 10,000 runs in Test match cricket and who is now a TV commentator.
