The BIG Fight! Sharad Pawar may fancy BCCI's top post if the Supreme Court keeps N. Srinivasan away from a re-entry.

New Delhi: The exiled Indian cricket board president Narayanaswamy Srinivasan was just praying that his name should not figure in the Justice Mudgal Committee report on betting and spot-fixing in the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL). His prayers went unanswered and his name figured prominently among the four individuals identified in the report submitted to the Supreme Court.

To Srinivasan's chagrin, a bench of Justices TS Thakur and Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Khalifulla mentioned his name along with his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, CEO of the Indian Premier League Sundar Raman and Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra. (IPL Scam: Top 10 developments)
