Sunil Gavaskar is no longer BCCI Chief. The Supreme court has relieved Sunil Gavaskar off his duties as the interim president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in charge of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 and has freed him to take up any assignments that he likes.
Sunil Gavaskar was unable to commentate on the recently concluded IPL-7 season and also in the ongoing England-India series but with Sunil no longer the BCCI chief, we might very well see Sunil Gavaskar in the commentary box for the remainder of the series.
The apex court bench headed by Justice T.S. Thakur relieved Gavaskar noting that the IPL 2014 for which he was appointed interim president had concluded June 1. The court’s order came in the wake of a letter by Gavaskar to the apex court seeking clarity on his position in BCCI after the conclusion of IPL 2014 which he was said to look after.
Sunil Gavaskar was appointed as interim president in March by the apex court after then BCCI chief N. Srinivasan was asked to step aside in the wake of the alleged betting charges against his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan during IPL 2013.
