A court in Hyderabad on Friday ordered an FIR to be lodged against BCCI Chief Sharad Pawar and three others for alleged misappropriation of funds during the fifth India-Australia ODI.

The Third Metropolitan Magistrate of Hyberabad issued the order acting on a complaint filed by a former Rajya Sabha member P Radhakrishna.

The petitioner contended that the Cricket Board had sold 24,000 tickets for a premium and made huge money, while only 15,000 tickets were made available for general public.

The petitioner alleged that Rs 12 crore were misappropriated in the process.

The court ordered that FIRs be filed against Pawar, BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah, Hyderabad Cricket Association President and Secretary G Vinod and Shivlal Yadav respectively.
