The High Court has asked the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) officials to suspend its three members T Shesh Narayan and Chitti Sridhar and Babu Rao as they seemed to have not followed the rules and regulations set for themselves. Previously, these three members had been warned about the about their behaviour which seemed unfit with respect to their high positions in the HCA. High Court Justice B Siva Sankara Rao, in a lengthy order dated November 1, 2016, upheld the civil revision petitions CRP No 1443 and 1484 of 2016 filed by Shesh Narayan and Prakash Chand Jain against the lower order courts which had asked for the same conclusion. Furthermore, he also went on to dismiss the revision petitions CRP No. 1867 and 1972 of 2016 filed by HCA.

According to the cricbuzz.com, Justice Siva Sankara Rao in his order has written, “The tribunal grossly erred in passing the impugned order being travesty and miscarriage of justice, as the court directed 4th respondent (Prakash Chand Ja in), who is chairman of the disciplinary committee, not to function and in directing the respondents No.2 and 3 (Arshad Ayub and John Manoj) to constitute a fresh committee, in spite of the fact that they are also parties to the litigation and filed counter making allegation.”

“So far as the impugned proceedings against the petitioner (Shesh Narayan) concerned dated 30.12.2015 received by the alleged Executive Committee meeting dated 27.12.2015, it was not followed by any member calling for show cause or explanation and it was not even the decision of the existing sub-committee… When such is the case, even for the lower court to bypass, much less to direct constitution of another disciplinary sub-committee, there is no material or basis,” he wrote.
