The Supreme Court on Thursday has declined to hear N Srinivasan‘s plea to reinstate him as the President of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Srinivasan had filed an interim application in the apex court to reinstate him as BCCI head for non-IPL purposes. However, on March 28, 2014,  Justice AK Patnaik had declared Sunil Gavaskar as the head of IPL-related affairs in BCCI while Shivlal Yadav will be the BCCI President for non-IPL affairs.

“Go to the same Bench which made you to step aside as BCCI chief.  It is not for us to modify orders passed by another Bench. The Bench which passed the order is very much available. So go and mention,” Justice Chauhan was quoted as saying by CNN-IBN. Whereas Justice Sikri said to the counsel, ”The orders he is seeking to be modified were not passed ex-parte and he was present [through his counsel] in the court. You are respondent number two. You were very much present in the hearing. This not an ex-parte order.”

The order was given during hearing on the Mudgal Committee report that went into betting and spot-fixing allegations against those involved in CSK and RR during IPL 6. BCCI had pleaded with the court to allow Srinivasan to hold the post of International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman from July. But the bench refused to pass any order regarding this.
