The Supreme Court has ordered BCCI chief in exile, N Srinivasan, that he can only be eligible for elections for the post of president of BCCI if he disowns Chennai Super Kings Team of IPL. In other words, he cannot enjoy the post of BCCI president and a Team franchise owner at the same time as both the positions create conflict of interests. The Supreme Court also sited that although there are no proofs but there is a strong probability that Srinivasan was involved in IPL corruption.
Sachin Tendulkar, the cricket legend, the epitome of inspiration,the messiah of Cricket, the synonym to numerous cricket records has finally decided to put his weapons down. Sachin has finally decided that the 200th Test Match he is about to play in Mumbai ground is going to be his last formal game in International Cricket. Test was the only format where he had enrolled himself after retiring from One Day and all other shorter forms of Cricket.The cricketer declared he decided to retire as his heart says so.
Singer Sonu Nigam has filed a complaint with the police about getting threatening calls from Underworld Don Chotta Shakeel asking him to change the event management company handling his 2014 world tour.
Also the BCCI has rubbished the report claiming cricket legend,Sachin Tendulkar, being forced by BCCI to retire.
N Srinivasan has been re-elected as the ‘unopposed’ BCCI President.He was the only one to file nomination for the post and hence the announcement was just a formality.Although as per the Supreme Court , the undisputed BCCI king cannot discharge his duties as a President until the final verdict in Jagan Reddy case where his company’s name is also associated and another case filed against him by Aditya Verma( Cricket Association of Bihar secretary).

Former IPL boss , Lalit Modi, is banned by BCCI for life for financial irregularities. In its Special General Meeting the Board discussed a report filed by its disciplinary committee and decided to impose the ban. Modi has although declared that this ban is not the end and that he will have the last laugh in the entire issue!
Crikceter Sreesanth’s name is in Delhi Police chargesheet along with Underworld Don Dawood Ibrahim and his aid Chota Shakeel and stringent Act MCOCA has been invoked on these 3 and 25 other arrested in IPL Betting Case . Bhajji(Harbhajan Singh) may soon have to publicly apologize to Sreesanth ‘bhai’ for the slap he had dropped on Sree Bhai’s face 😀
The BCCI Working Committee cleared Raj Kundra(co-owner Rajasthan Royals IPL Team) and Gurunath Meiyappan (son-in-law of Srinivasan)of any involvement in the spot-fixing or match-fixing during IPL 6.But the charges of betting still remain.
Chances of Srinivasan getting his BCCI throne back is likely on cards in coming days!
