New Delhi: After 18 months of deliberations on the 2013 Indian Premier League betting and match-fixing scandal, the Supreme Court has finally given a one thirty page judgement on the probe. The Apex Court said said that BCCI functions are public functions, amenable to judicial law. The court said N. Srinivasan’s son-in-law Meiyappan and Raj Kundra of Rajasthan Royals were involved in betting. The Supreme Court has asked a formation of a report committee to look into the matter. However, BCCI President N Srinivasan has been given a clean chit by the court. The court also added that he wont be able to contest the folowing BCCI election as the Pesident of the Indian Cricket Board.
In the wake of the IPL probe, Srinivasan was stood down last year by the top court from his position as Board chief. Srinivasan had mentioned that Gurunath was a mere ‘cricket enthusiast.’ The Supreme Court-appointed probe committee, led by Justice Mukul Mudgal, had in its first report indicted Meiyappan of betting and sharing team information.
