Here are some of the knocks the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President in exile, N Srinivasan has taken since the IPL spot fixing and betting scandal broke in 2013...

May 2013: Calls for Srinivasan to step down grow louder within the BCCI after his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan is arrested by Mumbai Police for betting in IPL.

June 2013: Srinivasan finally budges; steps aside as BCCI chief till the appointed commission completes IPL probe. The Working Committee appoints Jagmohan Dalmiya as interim BCCI president.

September 2013: The Supreme Court restrains Srinivasan from holding the post of BCCI president until further orders despite being re-elected unopposed.

October 2013: Supreme Court allows N Srinivasan to take charge as BCCI President as long as he stays away from IPL probe.

March 2014: Supreme Court says it's "nauseating" that Srinivasan was continuing in office despite various courts censuring him, and suspends him as BCCI president to ensure a fair probe.

Supreme Court proposes to the BCCI that Sunil Gavaskar be named as the interim chief of the Indian cricket board and Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals suspended from IPL 7.

April 2014: Srinivasan appeals to court to reinstate him as BCCI president, but the SC keeps him waiting.

SC reveals that Srini was one of the 13 people named in the sealed envelope submitted by Justice Mudgal Committee.

November 2014: Mudgal Committee submits final report to SC clearing Srinivasan of match-fixing and betting allegations, but indicts him for turning blind eye on his son-in-law.

Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan mentioned in the final report of the Mudgal committee. Also named were IPL CEO Sundar Raman and co-owner of the Rajasthan Royals Raj Kundra.

The SC drops a bomb observing that the India Cements-owned CSK franchise should be scrapped with immediate effect.

December 2014: SC tightens noose around Srinivasan, saying there is not room for conflict of interest in function of the BCCI or IPL. The court asks the board to provide list of its administrators who have commercial interests in the IPL or CLT20.

January 2015: SC finds sidelined BCCI president N. Srinivasan's son-in-law and CSK "official" Gurunath Meiyappan, and IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals' co-owner Raj Kundra guilty of betting and said the punishment will not only be confined to them but also extend to the franchises they represent.

Srinivasan found guilty of conflict of interest. SC quashes rule 6.2.4 of the BCCI Constitution that allowed its administrators to also have commercial interests in IPL and Champions League T20.

In what will be the biggest blow to Srinivasan, SC rules that he can't stand for BCCI elections until he disowns CSK.
