N Srinivasan will not participate in any Indian Premier League issue: Supreme Court

N SrinivasanAt the board's annual general meeting (AGM) held on his home turf on Sunday, Srinivasan was elected president unopposed

Quick notes:

* N Srinivasan will continue as Board of Control for Cricket in India president but will not participate in any Indian Premier League issue

* The Apex court asks BCCI and Cricket Association of Bihar to sort out scope and nature of committee to probe IPL spot-fixing

* Something is wrong with the apex cricket body: SC

* SC to hear the matter further on October 7

The BCCI's lawyers have been working overtime over the last three months, ever since the Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), an unrecognised body, went to court over the BCCI's internal probe in the IPL betting scandal. CAB secretary Aditya Verma, who initiated legal proceedings against the BCCI, emerged from the cricketing backwaters of Chhapra, Bihar, but he has influential friends.

The extent of Verma's connections can be gauged from the legal team representing the CAB at the Supreme Court. It includes leading lawyer Harish Salve and Nalini Chidambaram, the wife of finance minister P Chidambaram. Also Read: Srinivasan in driver's seat for one more year

Verma counts among his friends senior Congress leader Subodh Kant Sahay, the MP from Ranchi. Sahay was by Verma's side after the SC passed the restraint order on Friday that prevents N Srinivasan from officially taking charge even after being re-elected BCCI president. On Monday, the apex court will continue to hear the CAB application that sought to restrain Srinivasan from contesting the post of BCCI president besides his participation in any BCCI committee.
