Landmark ruling by SC fr good of Indn Crkt-BCCI integrity questioned most glaringly & ever so aptly!
Supreme Court (SC) will give it’s final verdict in the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing case which shocked everyone in the cricketing sphere. This judgement would be very crucial for N Srinivasan who is currently the President of the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) and the chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC). While for IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK) it would also be a crucial judgement. This judgement is crucial because BCCI elections have been delayed for the judgement.
According to ANI, it is expected that the fate of suspended Board of Control for Cricket in India president N. Srinivasan and his IPL team Chennai Super Kings will be determined on Thursday. Srinivasan, who is seeking a third term as BCCI president, is facing serious charges of conflict of interest as a cricket administrator.
His son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan is in the eye of the storm for betting. On December 17, when the Supreme Court broke for the winter break, the Special Bench comprising Justice T.S. Thakur and F.M. Kalifullah reserved its order on the corruption case after listening to final round of arguments.
The case dates back to June 2013 when Aditya Verma, secretary of the Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), raised charges of a conflict of interest in the BCCI’s original two-member inquiry panel for the IPL corruption issue. A Bombay High Court ruling later termed the probe panel “illegal”.
