New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday has put off the hearing of the Board of Control for Cricket in India vs Cricket Association of Bihar in the Indian Premier League scandal case to at least after two weeks. The apex court said the case was 'not urgent' and can be heard at a later date.

In spite of a request from the BCCI lawyers to hear the case on an emergent basis, the judges Justice AK Patnaik and Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar said the Board was free to go to the Chief Justice and seek another bench for quick disposal.

The BCCI's lawyers, it is learnt, are hoping for a fresh date of hearing on Saturday.
