The BCCI on Friday welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision not to suspend the Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from the IPL and said the order to make Sunil Gavaskar interim president was “acceptable” to the Board.
“We have no objection to the Supreme Court order. The BCCI lawyers have also said that the order is acceptable. Even Mr. Srinivasan had said through the lawyers that he is willing to step aside and after that what court decides will be acceptable to him,” BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla said.
“The good thing is that all eight teams will play in this year’s IPL. IPL will go on and there will be no hindrance.”
Shivlal Yadav, who will look after all non-IPL affairs of the BCCI, has vowed to give his best.
“I am quite happy to hear the news that I will be looking after cricket affairs after the IPL. I will try to do my best,” he said.
