In yet another spin of the merry-go-round, the Pune district and sessions court has reimposed the BCCI's suspension of Abhijit Kale from first-class cricket, after the Indian board filed an appeal against a Pune civil-court order.

The civil court had ruled, a couple of days earlier, that the ban on Kale could not go into effect without an inquiry. At the time, Milind Hartalkar, the BCCI's counsel in Pune, had told NDTV: "We are studying the judgments and if necessary we shall move a higher court by filing the appeal in the proper court."

The BCCI had suspended Kale after receiving written complaints from two national selectors - Kiran More and Pranob Roy - alleging that Kale had offered them Rs 10 lakhs each for a place in the Indian team.
