New Delhi: Indian cricket board vice-president Ravi Sawant said Thursday that Narayanaswami Srinivasan should never have been allowed to buy an Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise in the first place.
"Srinivasan shouldn't have been allowed to buy an IPL franchise. There is a definite conflict of interest there," Sawant told NDTV.
Sawant said that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would abide by any decision of the Supreme Court, but when it comes to choosing an interim president it would follow its constitution and the due process.
"If the court passes an order, we will abide by it. They proposed the name of (Sunil) Gavaskar, but who will become the president of the BCCI, that will be decided in our General Meeting according to our constitution," said Sawant.
