News : Gavaskar writes to Supreme Court about BCCI position
Players/Officials: Sunil Gavaskar
Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has been released by the Supreme Court from his role as the interim BCCI president for IPL matters. Board vice-president Shivlal Yadav will continue as president for administrative issues not related to the IPL while N Srinivasan remains sidelined pending the inquiry into corruption in the league.
Gavaskar had written to the Supreme Court last week, asking it to clarify the status of his position in the BCCI. The court had put him in charge of the IPL this March.
This would mean that Gavaskar can resume his media commitments in India, from which he had been barred since his appointment for the BCCI role.
It was also decided that the two-judge bench of Justice Ibrahim Kalifulla and Justice TS Thakur will continue to hear the case which has been filed by the Cricket Association of Bihar against the BCCI following the 2013 IPL corruption scandal.
