Elated by the Supreme Court order restraining N Srinivasan from taking charge as BCCI president even if he is elected in the AGM, Cricket Association of Bihar secretary Aditya Verma on Friday alleged that he braved death threats to fight the legal battle against the Tamil Nadu strongman.

Hearing the petition filed by Verma, Supreme Court on Friday allowed the BCCI to go ahead with its Annual General Meeting in Chennai on Sunday but has told Srinivasan not to take charge even if he is elected president.

"I am 300 percent happy with the verdict of the honourable Supreme Court. This is a lonely battle that I had to fight against a powerful sports administrator like Mr Srinivasan. I had full faith in judiciary," Verma told PTI.
