The Supreme Court in India has proposed sweeping changes to the BCCI, including Sunil Gavaskar or “an experienced cricketer” replacing N. Srinivasan as the board’s chief and suspension of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from the IPL.
The suggestions were made as a proposed order to the BCCI counsel during hearing of the case on Thursday; the board has been asked to reply to the proposals on Friday.
The court also proposed that employees of India Cements, of which Srinivasan is managing director, and which owns CSK, not be part of the BCCI set-up.
At its last hearing, on March 25, the court had effectively given Srinivasan an ultimatum to step down by today or risk being removed by it. At Thursday’s hearing it did not pass any explicit order to this effect but came up with the sweeping set of proposals.
The case dates back to June 2013 when the Cricket Association of Bihar secretary Aditya Verma raised charges of conflict of interest in the formation of BCCI’s two-member inquiry panel into the IPL corruption issue.
A Bombay High Court ruling later termed the probe panel “illegal”. The BCCI and the CAB filed petitions in the Supreme Court against this order, with the CAB contending that the Bombay High Court could have suggested a fresh mechanism to look into the corruption allegations.
