Madras HC rejects Chennai Super Kings' petition to stay their IPL suspension

Chennai Super Kings' bid to return to the Indian Premier League (IPL) suffered a major blow after the Madras High Court on 27 August rejected their petition seeking an interim relief on the two-year suspension imposed by the Supreme Court-appointed Justice Lodha Committee.

The High Court directed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) and India Cements Ltd to file a comprehensive counter-affidavit and deferred the case to 23 September.

Two-time champions Chennai Super Kings, who have been slapped a two-year ban along with Rajasthan Royals because of their team owners involvement in 2013 IPL spot-fixing, had moved the Madras HC challenging the suspension.

The first bench of the High Court had found the petition maintainable and issued notice to the BCCI.

The BCCI's last working committee meeting before the AGM due in September will be held later today and the IPL GC matter will be 12th in the list of agenda which will deal with various cricketing matters, including deliberating on the affiliation issues to Bihar and Uttarakhand.

"There will be various cricketing matters on the agenda including NCA, umpires, women's, finance, legal, marketing and affiliation committees," a CAB official said.

The annual report and accounts will also be submitted besides deciding on the date and venue of the upcoming AGM, he added.
