New Delhi: India’s Supreme Court on Tuesday reinstated N. Srinivasan as the country’s cricket chief, but ordered him to stay away from a fresh spot-fixing probe to be monitored by it.
“Srinivasan can take over as BCCI president, but we have also formed a new probe panel to investigate the case,” ruled A.K. Patnaik, one of the two judges who heard the case.
The court appointed a three-member panel headed by a former judge to investigate the scandal that has rocked the popular Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament run by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Srinivasan, 68, widely regarded as the most powerful man in world cricket, had been barred by the court from taking charge since his election as the BCCI chief for a third year on September 29.
