N. Srinivasan's fate as president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India hangs in balance as the Supreme Court has adjourned the IPL 2013 corruption case until Friday. Srinivasan, who is reportedly seeking re-election as Board chief, is among the 13 names being probed by the Justice Mukul Mudgal panel. (IPL 2013 Betting and Spot-Fixing Scam: Ten Top Developments)
The Mudgal panel submitted its final report to the Supreme Court on November 3. The judges said they were yet to read the report and were in no mood to share its content. The two-member bench said it will decide on Friday which part of the probe report will be made public.
Lawyers representing BCCI, Srinivasan and petitioners Cricket Association of Bihar wanted the judges to read the report so that they could argue the case. But now they have to wait till Friday.
The Mudgal report, submitted to the Supreme Court in a sealed cover, is in three parts. The 35-page report doesn't name any individual but refers to them by numbers.
A report by former Test captain Sourav Ganguly is also part of the Mudgal presentation. Ganguly was part of the inquiry team approved by Supreme Court.
