With less than a week left for the Board of Control for Cricket in India annual general meeting in Chennai, N. Srinivasan's intense desire to chair the all-important Board meeting is sure to face a few legal obstacles. The Cricket Association of Bihar, which in August moved the Supreme Court to institute a fresh panel to probe the Indian Premier League spot-fixing and betting scandals, had on Monday filed an application seeking an interim injunction restraining Srinivasan from attending the September 29 meeting. The Supreme Court has now agreed to hear the plea seeking to restrain Srinivasan from contesting for the BCCI president's post at its Chennai AGM.

The Bihar association had in August filed a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court after the Bombay High Court had termed as "illegal and unconstitutional" a BCCI probe panel that gave Srinivasan and his son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings team owner Gurunath Meiyappan among others, a clean chit.

Further to the SLP (No. 26633/13) in the apex court, the Bihar association, on Monday, filed an application saying that Srinivasan should not be allowed to attend any BCCI meetings till the Supreme Court had disposed of the IPL case. Interestingly, the Supreme Court is in no hurry to hear the BCCI lawyers on the IPL corruption issue.
