New Delhi: Decks were cleared for N Srinivasan to contest the ICC Presidential elections on June 27 with the Supreme Court today refusing to entertain a Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) plea seeking to restrain the BCCI President-in-exile from fighting the polls.

A bench of justices J S Kehar and C Nagappan said that the earlier apex court order was "clear" and it will not hear the plea of CAB on this issue.

"The person, who has been restrained from functioning as the BCCI President till the conclusion of probe, cannot be allowed to take contest for the post of President of the ICC," the counsel for CAB said.
