Supreme Court postpones hearing for cricket case

NEW DELHI: The much anticipated cricket cases could not be taken up by the Supreme Court today. A fresh listing would be made later.

What the court could take up tomorrow, is a case where certain elections of office-bearers to the Indian cricket board had been challenged and upheld by a Madras court.

The apex court had in a related order also stayed till final disposal the appointment of board supremo Jagmohan Dalmiya as the BCCI's patron-in-chief.

Details of a case on Indian cricket board's status as a 'state', brought on by Zee Telefilms, is not clear too. Zee Telefilms had moved SC after the board cancelled the India cricket telecast rights that it had awarded to Subhash Chandra's company for an astronomical $ 308 million.

Meanwhile, a representative of Ten Sports informed that the case involving the company had been deferred from 30 November almost a fortnight back. "We are also awaiting a new date," the Ten representative said.
