CRICKET- The Supreme Court on Thursday restrained all state cricket bodies from holding elections until the draft constitution of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) is not finalized.

The Court also announced that the latest ruling will not affect the elections already held for the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).

The bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud also barred High Courts from taking up petitions on the appointment of administrators for state cricket associations. 

As of now, amicus curiae senior advocate Gopal Subramanium is taking suggestions of state cricket associations and BCCI office-bearers in preparing the draft constitution which once approved by the Supreme Court bench will be binding on the BCCI.
