The lawyers who are associated with the spot-fixing scandal hearing knows how the Supreme Court functions and they feel that its is unlikely that something dramatic would happen in the hearing of Indian Premier League 2013 spot-fixing scandal on Monday afternoon, involving the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chief, N Srinivasan.

A lawyer who is supposed to play an important role in the proceedings said, “The interim report will be tabled, opened and the court will grant time for the parties to study it,” reported Mumbai Mirror.

A division bench of Supreme Court will open a file at 3pm on Monday, which may contain things that may leave a serious impact on the future of Indian cricket.

When Justice TS Thakur and Justice Kalifullah would be opening the file somewhere in the Boat Club Road of Chennai, newly appointed ICC chairman, N Srinivasan would be waiting with a tainted breath to know about his future.

On Monday, Srinivasan’s future as the president of BCCI and may be even as the chairman of the ICC will be decided. The world will know whether Justice Mukul Mudgal has found any evidence against Srinivasan who denied any kind of involvement in the spot fixing scam of Indian Premier League, 2013.

Harish Salve who previously appeared for Aditya Verma (the petitioner in this case) said, “Most likely the court will grant the time sought by Justice Mudgal unless the report is explosive already in which case the court may pass an order. The BCCI could ask for time to study the report.” Salve had previously appeared for Aditya Verma, the petitioner in this case. Nalini Chidambaram is expected to represent him.

Srinivasan has been looking to restore all his powers ever since he was named in the spot-fixing scam. Senior lawyer Kapil Sibal, who has been representing Srinivasan might argue that his client should be allowed to remain as the BCCI president till the final report as Mudgal will seek for another two months in this probe before he puts forth his final report.

A top BCCI official said, “We want the president to discharge his statutory functions. The Interim president (Shivlal Yadav) can only see the day-to-day running of the board but statutory duties can only by performed by the elected president.”
