New Delhi, Apr 28 (): The Supreme court could not arrive at a single verdict on the petition filed by former BCCI Chairman A C Muthiah, challenging the BCCI amendment, that allowed Srinivasan to be owner of Chennai Super kings(CSK). A two-judge Bench of the Supreme Court today delivered a split verdict on a petition challenging amendment in BCCI regulation, to exclude IPL and T-20 tournaments from its purview and referred the matter to the chief justice for allocating it to a larger Bench.
While Justice Panchal dismissed the petition filed by Muthiah, challenging the validity of the amendment in clause 6.2.4, Justice Mishra allowed the petition holding that a BCCI officer bearer cannot have stake in the IPL team.
With the Division Bench comprising justices J M Panchal and Gyan Sudha Mishra giving the split verdict, the petition has been referred to the chief justice for allocating it to a larger Bench.
Subramaniam Badrinath cracked an unbeaten 63 (44 balls) to power defending champions Chennai Super Kings to a comfortable eight-wicket win over Pune Warriors in the Indian Premier League at the DY Patil stadium here Tuesday.
Pursuing Warriors’ modest 141 for victory, Super Kings romped home with three balls to spare. Today’s win, their fourth in seven matches, took their points tally to eight points. Pune Warriors, who suffered their fourth successive defeat, have a mere four points from six games.
Also playing a lead role in the Super Kings victory was their new ball bowler, Doug Bollinger, who came away with three for 21 in his four overs.
