Srinivasan's attempt at being reinstated as BCCI chief ahead of this month's Annual General Meeting (AGM) was thwarted by the Supreme Court on Monday when it made clear that he needs wait till the Mudgal committee submits report on the spotfixing scandal that rocked IPL- 2013.

Handing the panel -- consisting of Mukul Mudgal, N. Nageswara Rao, Nilay Dutta, former IPS officer B. B. Mishra and former India skipper Sourav Ganguly -- a two- month extension, the apex court made it clear that they need to finish the probe at the earliest.

But the court turned down the proposal, decreeing it was impossible to allow Srinivasan to return to office on the grounds that signature was required clear the annual accounts of the Board. They, however, added that there wasn't anything against him in the report the panel submitted Friday.

Speaking to M AIL T ODAY , petitioner Aditya Verma said it was the end of the road for Srinivasan and any hopes he had of rejoining office before the AGM had been squashed by the apex court.

" I am very happy because from the first day, Srinivasan's agenda was to get back into office. He didn't care about anything else. But the reality is that karma returns to haunt you.

One has to pay for sins. I think it is a shame that other members in the BCCI haven't stood up and shown him his rightful place.

Thankfully, the Supreme Court has ensured that his goal of returning to office just ahead of the AGM has hit a dead end," the Cricket Association of Bihar secretary said.
