T.S. Thakur to be next Chief Justice of India

Justice T.S. Thakur is set to take over the position after Dattu retires on Dec. 2. Dattu personally recommended him as his replacement to the government Monday, news outlets reported. Sixty-three-year-old Justice TS Thakur, who shot into the limelight with his hard-hitting judgment in the IPL spot-fixing scam that resulted in the ouster of then powerful BCCI president N Srinivasan and two top teams - Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, will be the next Chief Justice of India.  Justice Thakur’s passion for cricket was evident during the year-long hearing of the case. Captain of the SC Judges XI for the past three years, his other hobbies are golf, badminton, swimming, reading and gardening. 
Hailing from Jammu, he is the senior-most judge of the SC and will take charge as the 43rd CJI of India when the incumbent HL Dattu retires on December 2.  CJI Dattu on Wednesday commenced the process for his appointment by forwarding the recommendation to the Union government.  Thakur, a suave judge with an excellent sense of humour, is known for the way he conducts proceedings by giving detailed hearings to all the parties laced with pointed questions. He is also the only judge who uses the microphone fitted on the dais so that he is audible and clear to all.
