BCCI fails to pay: Gavaskar goes to SC

New Delhi, July 11: Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar is upset with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). He has complained to the Supreme Court over non-payment of fees from the Board for his assignment as its interim president.

Due to the investigations in the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandals involving his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, Supreme Court had suspended BCCI president N Srinivasan and had named Gavaskar as interim chief for IPL 7.

Gavaskar, who works as a TV commentator, took up the job. However, Supreme Court, in its order had directed the BCCI to compensate the former India skipper during the IPL as he was not allowed to his TV commentary stints.

Now, according to a report on "NDTV" today, Gavaskar has written to the apex court to direct the Board to pay his fees.

"Gavaskar in his letter to the Supreme Court said he is yet to get his fees from BCCI. The top court was supposed to take this case on Friday but adjourned it after Justice Rohinton Narimam recused from the matter," the report said.
