The Supreme Court of India passed its interim order in the spot-fixing and betting controversy and has stated that Sunil Gavaskar will take charge as Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president during the Indian Premier League (IPL). A pertinent part of the order is that N Srinivasan cannot take charge till the case continues in the Supreme Court.

With this, the court also stated that Gavaskar will now decide whether or not Sundar Raman can continue as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the IPL.

The Supreme Court also permitted the IPL 2014 to continue and although they had proposed a ban for Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, they have now allowed both teams to continue. The next hearing in this case would come on April 16.

Speaking to PTI, Gavaskar said on March 27 when the Supreme Court had proposed his name as BCCI President, “I will consider it, it will be a huge honour that Supreme Court feels I will be good enough to do the job. But we will have to wait and watch until tomorrow in which direction it goes. Let’s not jump the gun.  As an opening batsman, you have to be prepared for all kinds of challenges, you have to play in all kinds of pitches, you are always prepared for a challenge mentally and physically.”

“Even today, although I am happy to be away from the limelight, I am prepared to do what is needed if the Supreme Court wants me to do so,” Gavaskar concluded.
