The Supreme Court has allowed N Srinivasan to take charge as BCCI President

It was announced just yesterday that the SC had organised a three-member probe to look into Srinivasan’s IPL spot-fixing scandal. Srinivasan was unanimously elected for the post for a third time on 29th September at the BCCI AGM in Chennai but was barred from taking full control till the petition registered in the apex court by Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) was cleared.

But in a strange turn of events, the Supreme Court of India just stated that they have given N Srinivasan full permission to go ahead and take charge of the BCCI as President.

Here’s PTI’s tweet on the same -

SC directs BCCI and Srinivasan not to interfere in the probe.
