gavaskarAgencies, New Delhi
The Supreme Court today removed  Board of  Control for Cricket in India(BCCI) president N Srinivasan and  appointed former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar as its interim  working President, till the conclusion of the IPL-7 tournament.

A bench comprising Justices A K Patnaik and Fakkir Mohammed Kalifulla also directed that Chennai Super Kings(CSK) and Rajasthan Royals(RR) shall participate in IPL-7.

The apex court also directed that Vice-President from south zone Shivlal Yadav should take over as the BCCI chief after IPL-7 is over and continue till the investigation in IPL spot fixing and betting scam is over.

The apex court also directed that Gavaskar shall get out  of all his obligations towards BCCI and shall also do ‘’neither documentary nor commentary for the Board’’.    Gavaskar was also directed to keep out all those who  have stake in CSK or India Cement. The Supreme Court fixed next date of hearing for April 16.

Former Punjab and Harayana High Court chief justice Mukul Mudgal has reportedly named six capped players of Team India  as suspects in the IPL spot fixing scam.

Srinivasan, his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and captain  of Team India M S Dhoni are also under the scanner of the investigating agency. Justice Mudgal has given a damning report against Srinivasan  and his son-in-law and has described the continuation of Srinivasan as BCCI chief as ‘nauseating’.
