SC to hear BCCI plea for transcripts of Dhoni, Srinivasan statements
The Supreme Court Wednesday said that it will hear, April 11, the plea by the BCCI seeking the transcript of depositions by team India captain M.S.Dhoni, N. Srinivasan and chief IPL operator Sundar Raman before the Mukul Mudgal committee probing allegations of betting and spot fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
A bench headed by Justice A.K.Patnaik said that it would hear plea by the BCCI April 11 as senior counsel C.A.Sundaram said that the cricketing body needed the transcript of the audio tapes of the deposition before the hearing of the matter by the court on April 16.
The senior counsel told the court that a lot of things are being stated in the media on this count.
The Mudgal Committee has submitted the details of the statements in a sealed cover to the apex court and that has not been made public.
Appointing legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar as its interim president on March 28, in place of incumbent N. Srinivasan who is under cloud, the apex court had said that it would hold further hearing on the Mudgal Committee report and its recommendations on April 16.
While appointing Gavaskar as interim president of the BCCI, the bench of Justice A.K. Patnaik and Justice Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifullahad said that Gavaskar would only be in charge of the seventh edition of the IPL starting April 16 in the UAE.
The court entrusted the senior moist vice-president of BCCI Shivlal Yadav to oversee the rest of the work of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
