The Delhi High Court today agreed to hear a plea seeking direction to the Centre for taking control over the Indian Premier League by separating it from BCCI in view of irregularities including spot-fixing cropping up in the cash-rich cricket tournament.

A bench of Chief Justice D Murugesan and Justice Jayant Nath, however, refused to ban the IPL in view of the apex court's Tuesday order refusing to pass such order.

The bench asked the petitioner, NGO Association for Social and Humanitarian Affairs, to amend its petition by deleting the prayer for ban and posted the matter for hearing on its another plea seeking government control on IPL to August 23.
