A bench headed by Justice A K Patnaik agreed to hear the appeal filed by Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) against the high court verdict and clubbed it with the petition of BCCI which had challenged the judgement declaring as illegal the Indian cricket board's two-member probe panel set up to look into spot-fixing and betting charges in the IPL tournament.
The CAB pleaded that the High Court which declared the panel of two judges unconstitutional should have appointed a fresh panel to look into the issue.
The cross appeal filed by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and CAB will be heard by the apex court on September 11.
The apex court had earlier on August 7 refused to grant interim stay on High Court verdict, derailing the plan of Srinivasan to return as chief of BCCI.
He had stepped aside from discharging his duties as BCCI President in the light of spot fixing and betting scandal which allegedly involved his son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings team's former principal Gurunath Meiyappan.
The high court order had come on July 30 just two days after the panel, comprising two former judges of the Madras High Court Justices T Jayarama Chouta and R Balasubramanian, submitted its report giving a clean chit to all those against whom the probe was conducted.
