New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday proposed Sunil Gavaskar's name as replacement for N Srinivasan as Board of Control for Cricket in India president and the batting legend said he will be "honoured" and "happy" to adhere to the directives of the highest court of the land. "First and foremost, if the highest court suggests something, you have to do so but that has to be on record. I am currently contracted with BCCI as a commentator. But if Supreme Court wants me to do that, I will do it," Gavaskar said. (Also read: Supreme wants Gavaskar to be BCCI president)

"When the Supreme Court asks you, there is no question about it, there is not much you can do and I will be happy to do what they ask me to do", he told NDTV.

Gavaskar, a former Indian captain, said he would wait for the final order from the court. "I will consider it, it will be a huge honour that Supreme Court feels I will be good enough to do the job. But we will have to wait and watch until tomorrow in which direction it goes. Let's not jump the gun," the former Indian captain said. (Read: Gavaskar ready for any challenge)
