Supreme Court snubs Srinivasan’s bid to stay on as BCCI chief for non-IPL issues

New Delhi, May 22 (PTI): The Supreme Court on Thursdayrefused to hear N. Srinivasan's plea for modification of its earlier orders to enable him to function as the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India for non-IPL cricketing activities.

A vacation bench of Justices B.S. Chauhan and A.K. Sikri pulled up Srinivasan for seeking its permission to look after cricketing activities of BCCI except Indian Premier League-7, saying it cannot modify the orders passed by another bench and asked him to approach the bench which had delivered the verdict.

Srinivasan has been excluded from the BCCI after being tainted by allegations of match-fixing and betting against his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappa.

He had sought modification of the apex court's March 28 and May 16 interim orders by which he was restrained from functioning as the BCCI President.

”You were respondent in the case. You were very much present in the hearing. They were not an ex-parte orders and they were passed in your presence,” the bench said.

”We are not here to modify the orders passed by another bench,” it said.

The Supreme Court had earlier directed a probe against Srinivasan, to be conducted by Justice Mudgal Committee. The committee has been directed to file a report in a sealed envelope before the apex court by the end of August.

The court has appointed veteran cricketer Sunil Gavaskar as an interim president of BCCI for managing IPL 7 and Shiv Lal Yadav as an interim president to look after the other cricketing activities of BCCI.
