New Delhi, Apr 16: The Supreme Court Wednesday said that Sunder Raman will continue as the chief operating officer of the IPL 7 as, it said, any other course would disturb the ongoing cricketing event.
The apex court bench of Justice A K Patnaik and Justice Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifulla passed the order after Sunil Gavaskar, interim president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), told the court to take a call on the issue.
Referring to Gavaskar’s letter, in which he said he was not privy to all the information relating to the issue before the court, the court in its order said: “…as the IPL 7 has commenced, we will not like it to be disturbed in any manner. We direct Sunder Raman to continue chief operating officer of the IPL 7. We hope Sunder Raman will live up to the responsibility.”
IPL 2014 begins April 16, 2014.
