Sunil Gavaskar has complaint to the Supreme Court that the Board of Cricket Control in India is yet to pay his fees for taking charge as an interim president of the BCCI during seventh season of IPL, earlier this year. Due to spot-fixing scandal in IPL 6, the Supreme Court had banned N. Srinivasan from working as BCCI president and instead selected Gavaskar as interim president. The former India opener was asked to look after IPL related matters this season.
Supreme Court, along with N Srinivasan and his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, who has been charged with corruption during IPL 2013, are probing by appointing a committee headed by retired judge, Justice Mukul Mudgal.
The apex court, while appointing Gavaskar as an acting BCCI president, the court directed that the former Test captain, who was employed as commentator, should abstain from doing his media duties. The court ordered BCCI to pay Gavaskar accordingly for discharging his duties during his stint as acting President.
Now, Gavaskar in his letter to the Supreme Court reveals he is yet to get his dues from BCCI. India’s top court was scheduled to take up this case on Friday but adjourned it earlier this morning after Justice Rohinton Narimam was disqualified from the matter.
