Sunil Gavsakar, the former Indian skipper, says he would be “happy” to assist and comply with any directive of the Supreme Court on Thursday to NDTV where he is a resident expert. The Supreme Court earlier on Thursday suggested Sunil Gavaskar to replace N Srinivasan as BCCI president as an interim president.

The apex court proposed Gavaskar’s name as someone who could take over because there is a conflict of interest with the incumbent President.

Gavaskar, however, acknowledged that it is not easy for him to remark on the matter as the matter is sub judiced.

Gavaskar then implied that, in case the apex court orders him, he would be ready to take up the post.

Using cricketing analogy Gavaskar said: “As an opening batsman, you must be ready for all kinds of challenges. Will do everything to the best of my abilities, if the highest court is reposing this faith in me, I’ll be happy to do what they tell me to do.”

64 year-old former opening batsmen also refrained from commenting about N Srinivasan.

“Srinivasan is innocent till proven guilty. (But) I cannot pass an opinion on what Supreme Court feels as I am not a legal man,” he concluded.

The Supreme Court earlier on Thursday came down hard on BCCI President N Srinivasan and stated that it will pass an order on the spot fixing and betting scandal on Friday.
