Srinivasan, Meiyappan, Sundar Raman and Kundra under IPL spot fixing scanner

MUMBAI: The Supreme Court has revealed seven of the 13 names being probed by the Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee for their alleged involvement in the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot fixing scandal.

The apex court bench headed by Justice T. S. Thakur revealed that ICC chairman and sidelined BCCI president N Srinivasan, his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, IPL COO Sundar Raman, and Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra are under the scanner.

Srinivasan,-Meiyappan,-Sundar-Raman-Kundra-coverThe SC said that the copy of the report be provided to the BCCI, Srinivasan and other non-players who can file their objections within four days of receiving it.

The bench, however, withheld the names of active cricketers who were probed by the Committee considering the sensitivity of the matter. According to media reports, Indian player Stuart Binny and former England batsman Owais Shah are allegedly under scrutiny.

Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) secretary Aditya Verma, the petitioner in the case, said that the Supreme Court has not revealed the names of the big players.

“The Supreme Court released the seven names of the 13 people who were named in the Mudgal report. Three of the names are of players, while the others are of officials. The court requested that the names of the players not be disclosed,” he said.

The court is going to hear the case again on 24 November. This means that the BCCI’s 20 November AGM will be cancelled. Srinivasan was expected to seek re-election at the AGM.
