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.
In a major set back to ICC Chairman , N Srinivasan (and suspended BCCI chairman), the Supreme Court wants Chennai Super Kings Team to be disqualified. After the Mudgal report which found Meiyappan , son-in-law of N Srinivasan owner of Team CSK being involved in betting.
The Court has also asked to conduct fresh elections for BCCI excluding officials with tainted image in IPL spot-fixing Scam. Srinivasan, on the other hand, wants a clean chit from the court to contest for the post of BCCI president yet again.
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!

Raj Kundra on Saturday wished his Bollywood actress wife Shilpa Shetty a happy birthday and apologised for the disturbing developments in the past few days that saw the two being dragged into the IPL spot-fixing issue.He tweeted her aswell assuring truth will come out! 😀
Suddenly it reminded me of an old day TV advert on some washing powder which use to show a woman frustrated on her daily detergent/washing powder( dont remember exactly what it was ) and would say – “Meine Maangi Thi Dhulaai aur Tumne diya haathon mei jalan?? ” May be Shilpa ji remembers the ad !! 🙂
