The Supreme Court, on Thursday, has declined to hear N. Srinivasan's plea to reinstate him as Board of Control for Cricket in India president. The court told Srinivasan's lawyer to approach the same bench that passed the orders to remove him as Board chief and appoint Sunil Gavaskar and Shivlal Yadav as interim heads to run BCCI affairs.

Srinivasan had filed an application on Wednesday urging the Supreme Court to reinstate him as Board chief. He wanted to run non-Indian Premier League matters, since the court had on May 16 appointed a team under former judge Justice Mukul Mudgal to probe the 2013 IPL match-fixing scandal.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court Bench headed by Justice BS Chauhan told Srinivasan's lawyer, "Go to the same Bench which made you to step aside as BCCI chief. It is not for us to modify orders passed by another Bench. The Bench which passed the order is very much available. So go and mention." A two-judge Bench consisting of Justice AK Patnaik had passed an order on March 28 to remove Srinivasan as BCCI president till investigations into the IPL fixing and betting scam was over.
