BCCI senior vice-president Arun Jaitley, a former union law minister, read out the High Court's order during the IPL Governing Council meeting and it was decided that the Board will file a Special Leave Petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court.

The scheduled working committee meeting had to be postponed on technical grounds as the agenda was not set and it was not mentioned as emergency working committee. According to the BCCI constitution, the committee cannot meet twice in a week.

The Committee met on last Sunday in Kolkata when the two-member probe panel, comprising retired Tamil Nadu High Court judges T Jayaram Chouta and R Balasubramanian, submitted its report giving a clean chit to Chennai Super Kings team principal Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals' co-owner Raj Kundra.

Srinivasan and interim BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya were called by the IPL Governing Council after the meeting and were informed about the decision to file an SLP in the Supreme Court.
