Supreme Court today launched a crackdown against the BCCI and N. Srinivasan today, issuing a virtual ban on his desire to fight another election for the post of the president of the top cricketing body. Court has put under question the future of IPL teams Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals and put another cloud over Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra.

Here are the top 10 points:

1. Amendment in BCCI rules allowing N Srinivasan to own IPL team Chennai Super Kings, is bad, said Supreme Court in the IPL scam case.

2. However, it added that charges of cover-up against BCCI president-in-exile N Srinivasan not proved.

3. SC holds as unsustainable and impermissible amendment in BCCI rule permitting cricket administrator to have commercial interest in IPL and Champions League.

4. Srinivasan cannot contest the next election for BCCI chief position.

5. SC says conflict of interest in cricket leads to great confusion.
