Jaipur: Mar 28, 2014

Welcoming Sunil Gavaskar‘s appointment as interim president of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for IPL 7, the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) questioned the promotion of senior vice-president Shivlal Yadav to the top job of the cash-rich Twenty20 (T20) league.

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

Mehmood Abdi, a permanent RCA representative in BCCI and more recognised as the lawyer of the former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi, questioned the grounds of ascertaining seniority in the cricket governing body.

“RCA welcomes the order passed by Supreme Court ordering veteran cricketer Gavaskar to take over as interim president of BCCI and removal of disgraced BCCI Chief N Srinivasan from the post of president till the SLP filed by CAB is disposed off,” Abdi said in a statement.

“It has been suggested that Mr Shivlal Yadav would be taking over as BCCI chief because of his seniority. What are the grounds for finding out the seniority? Will it be calculated on ground of experience, age, terms or time of taking over the post or what?” asked Abdi.

“The details of the interim order would be available on Saturday but reports suggest that “senior most” vice president would take over as president of BCCI so these are the valid questions.”

Abdi said it was shameful that things which should have been done by the BCCI reached the highest court of the land.

“Despite having the opportunity to devise internal mechanism for checking aberrations and violations of system the current dispensation turned a blind eye to the conflict of interest of Srinivasan, involvement of his son in law in match fixing and host of other violations so much so that repeated warnings when BCCI failed to rise up to the occasion the apex court had to intervene,” he said.

“I feel the BCCI members must have learnt a lesson and would try and resist Srinivasan. There certainly would be changes in BCCI equations now and after the final order of the apex court N Srinivasan would be history and only be damned as someone causing monumental damage to the game and ruining the institution of BCCI.”
