Swamy files petition seeking stay on CSK’s ban

The single most popular and successful Indian Premier League (IPL) team, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), stands unfairly suspended from the IPL T20 cricket tournament, said Subramanian Swamy, a noted economist and head of the Action Committee Against Corruption in India.

The entire proceedings before the Bombay High Court, the Supreme Court, the Justice Mudgal Committee and Justice RM Lodha Committee, which culminated in the two-year suspension of CSK and Rajasthan Royals, stands completely vitiated due to motivated and vested litigation instituted by the Cricket Association of Bihar, said Swamy in a writ petition filed in the Madras High Court.

He urged the Court to grant an interim stay on the ban on CSK by the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee order passed on July 14 on behalf of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Swamy's petition came up before a two-judge bench headed by the Chief Justice Kishan Kaul and Justice TS Sivagnanam. Accepting the petition, the bench said it will be taken up along with a petition filed by CSK coming up for hearing on September 23.

Swamy later Tweeted saying the “Madras High Court saw prima facie merit in my arguments, issued notice and listed it for hearing on 23. The process for liberating CSK starts now.”
