New Delhi: The Supreme Court has said it will pass an order on the Indian Premier League spot-fixing and betting scandal on Friday and has proposed that former India captain Sunil Gavaskar could take over as the interim chief of the Board of Control for Cricket in India in place of its embattled president N. Srinivasan.

Gavaskar told NDTV, "I will be happy to do what the Supreme Court asks me to do. I will feel honored."

The court on Thursday also suggested that Indian Premier League teams Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals should not be part of the seventh season beginning in the United Emirates on April 16, as they are being investigated in the case. Both teams are former champions, with Chennai winning the IPL twice.
