Supreme Court postpones verdict on N. Srinivasan to Oct. 7

New Delhi, Sept. 30 (ANI): The Supreme Court has reserved its verdict on Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President-in-exile N. Srinivasan, and has said that the hearing was 'inconclusive'.

The next Supreme Court hearing on Srinivasan's case will be on October 7.

On Sunday, Srinivasan was elected, unopposed, for a third term as BCCI President for the 2013-2014 year at the BCCI's 84th Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Chennai.

However, he can assume office only after the country's apex court passes its final verdict on a petition filed by Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) secretary Aditya Verma, regarding his candidature.

The CAB, which is not recognised by the BCCI, had moved to the Supreme Court on September 23, seeking to restrain N. Srinivasan from getting re-elected to the top-post because of his connection to Gurunath Meiyappan, who is presently facing corruption charges in connection with the sixth season of the Indian Premiere League (IPL).
