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 !! 🙂
Police sources say Rajasthan Royals co-owner Shilpa Shetty is also involved in betting on cricket matches after Raj Kundra , husband and co-owner with Shilpa Shetty admitted to betting.
Shilpa ji may be concerned about her fans’ reactions .May be !! 😀
BCCI’s three-member disciplinary committee including Ajay Shirke, former cricketer, Ravi Shastri and a retired High Court judge is an independent committee which will investigate Gurunath Meiyappan’s alleged role in betting during the Indian Premier League.Lets see how things shape up ?
Former IPL Chariman , Lalit Modi , who has been a face of IPL’s success and the first controversy and who has now sheltered himself and family in the UK , wants BCCI chief, N Srinivasan, to resign from his post. This is after his son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings franchise owner , Gurunath Meiyappan , was arrested for his alleged involvement in IPL betting and match-fixing scandals. Modi is of the view that CSK is Srinivasan’s Team and just the face is his son-in-law.
Well, in the past these two men have had rough times with each other, as per media and looks like Modi has got the right opportunity. Srinivasan on the other hand refuses to leave the BCCI throne and says he has been targeted.
