N Srinivasan's fate to be decided by the Supreme Court today
Lawyers of the BCCI and CAB have been alerted by officials of the Supreme Court to be present in the apex court that would deliver its judgment on the much-publicised case
New Delhi: Lawyers of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) have been alerted by officials of the Supreme Court to be present in the apex court that would deliver its judgment on the much-publicised case.
"We have been asked to be present in the court, the verdict is expected around 1400 hours," said CAB president Aditya Varma.
The court, on December 17, had reserved its orders on whether N Srinivasan can contest BCCI elections. Chennai-based Srinivasan, fighting conflict of interest charges at the apex court, is eyeing a return to the helm of affairs at the world's richest cricket board.
Focus on conflict of interest
The court had also reserved orders on whether there is conflict of interest in Srinivasan owning Chennai Super Kings.
Srinivasan's son-in-law and former high ranking official of Indian Premier League team, Chennai Super Kings, Gurunath Meiyappan was indicted for betting during the 2013 edition of the world's richest league.
The Supreme Court had slammed Srinivasan for his dual role as then board president and owner of the Chennai Super Kings through his company, India Cements.
The judges had asked BCCI to justify the controversial 6.2.4 clause that allowed BCCI officials to wear multiple hats and have commercial interest in IPL and CLT20.
