The Supreme Court today ordered that Gavaskar should be made the interim president for managing affairs of IPL, while the senior most vice-president -- Shivlal Yadav -- should take care of the non-IPL affairs of the BCCI.
     
Hailing the Supreme Court's decision not to suspend Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from playing in IPL 7, BCCI Vice-President Rajeev Shukla said the order was in the best interest of the game and cricket fans.
     
"We have no objection to the Supreme Court order. The BCCI lawyers have also said that the order is acceptable. Even Mr Srinivasan had said through the lawyers that he is willing to step aside and after that what court decides will be acceptable to him," Shukla said.
     
"The good thing is that all eight teams will play in this year's IPL. IPL will go on and there will be no hindrance."
     
Senior counsel Harish Salve had yesterday accused Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni of being "guilty of corrupt practice" by lying before the Mudgal Committee on the role of the Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan in CSK.
     
But the BCCI today defended Dhoni in the court and said he has been wrongly vilified by media after yesterday's proceedings.
     
"It was not wise to drag Dhoni is this matter. He has nothing to do with it," Shukla said.
     
Shivlal Yadav, who will look after all non-IPL affairs of the BCCI, has vowed to give his best.
     
"I am quite happy to hear the news that I will be looking after cricket affairs after the IPL. I will try to do my best," he said.
