The petition challenging Arbitrator Justice J.K. Mehra's award was filed yesterday, two days before award was to become binding if it had gone unchallenged. The January 27, award of the Arbitrator would have become effective tomorrow at the expiry of the 90-day period.
Jadeja's lawyer, Vineet Malhotra told PTI that it would not be possible for him to say anything right now about the petition. ``We will see to it (petition) as and when it will come for hearing,'' he said, when asked about the ground on which the award has been challenged. ``The Board would be in a better position to explain it,'' he said, adding that Jadeja was yet to be served with a copy of the petition.
Asked whether BCCI's petition was to scuttle Thursday's April 24 High Court order asking the Board to consider Jadeja for selection in the Ranji Trophy matches if found eligible, Mr. Malhotra said ``it would be unfair for me to say anything''.
The Court order to this effect was on a petition by Jadeja seeking direction to the Board of Control for Cricket in India following the Arbitrator's award given three months ago.
