MUMBAI: Axed chief of the The Board Of Control For Cricket In India, N. Srinivasan, urged the Supreme Court on Friday to reinstate him as the president of the cricket board.
There is absolutely nothing in the Mudgal report incriminating me,” he said. Also the Chennai Super Kings appealed to the court to not take any action which could lead to the elimination of the team from the Indian Premier League.
On November 17, the apex court announced that Srinivasan was not involved in the match fixing, while his son-in-law, Gurunath Meiyappan, and Rajastan Royals owner, Raj Kundra, were found guilty of betting that could leave CSK and RR face scrapping from the league.
Also, the Mugdal Committee’s reports proved Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s statemnet in the appex court that Meiyappan was just a “cricket enthusiastic and not officially related to CSK” was proved false which can again be a bad news for CSK.
The BCCI has also stood behind N Srinivasan as the Mudgal Committee cleared him of betting and match fixing allegations. They have also backed the IPL COO Sundar Raman in his legal battle in the Supreme Court.
BCCI had said the charges against Srinivasan were aimed at destabilising the Board. Srinivasan is currently also the Chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC).
