The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday told the Supreme Court that Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been wrongly vilified by media after the hearing on the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal hearing on March 27.

PTI reported, “Dhoni has been wrongly vilified by media after yesterday’s proceedings in which false allegations were levelled against him, BCCI to SC.”

The apex court order that former India captain Sunil Gavaskar will take charge as the BCCI interim president during the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Supreme Court has said that they want Gavaskar to take over as President for the IPL.

The court also said that IPL 2014 will go on and no team will be disqualified. It had earlier proposed that Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals be suspended from the IPL.

A two-judge panel had warned the BCCI that it will issue an order for Srinivasan’s dismissal on Friday after describing his refusal to quit so far as “nauseating”.

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.
