SC reserves order on Srinivasan's future 
The Supreme Court on Wednesday reserved its orders on whether N. Srinivasan can contest elections for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Srinivasan, who is fighting conflict of interest charges at the apex court, is eyeing a return to the helm of affairs at the BCCI. The Supreme Court also reserved orders on whether there is conflict of interest in Srinivasan owning Chennai Super Kings.
Srinivasan's son-in-law and former high ranking official of the Chennai Super Kings, Gurunath Meiyappan was indicted for betting during the Indian Premier League in 2013.
The Supreme Court had slammed Srinivasan for his dual role as then board president and owner of the Chennai Super Kings through his company, India Cements. Earlier on Wednesday, Srinivasan had argued that having commercial interests is not necessarily conflict of interest as per Supreme Court guidelines. 
The BCCI today also submitted a list of people with conflict of interest - the list included names like Sunil Gavaskar, Sourav Ganguly and Ravi Shastri among many others.
The judges had asked BCCI to justify the controversial 6.2.4 clause that allowed BCCI officials to wear multiple hats and have commercial interest in IPL and CLT20. The court reserved orders on quashing this provision of the Indian board.
The judgement to be delivered at a later date by the Supreme Court will also deal with whether to appoint a high powered panel to examine the findings of the Mukul Mudgal probe panel and fix liability and punishment for Meiyappan, IPL COO Sundar Raman and co-owner of Rajasthan Royals, Raj Kundra.
