Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly is likely to make into the panel headed by Justice Mukul Mudgal in the ongoing probe committee in the spot-fixing and betting scandal which effected fame of IPL in 2013.

On Friday, the Supreme Court allowed Justice Mudgal led panel to launch probe against 13 members which includes the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)’s President N Srinivasan.

Sources said that Justice Mudgal had thought about Ganguly’s help in the probe panel and the former India captain has given his nod. Ganguly may join the panel after returning from London.

The panel has chosen several police officers for assistance in the probe.

The panel has been given the powers to investigate, require attendance of witnesses, the power to examine witnesses, the power to search and the power to seize by the apex court. The panel, however, cannot arrest anyone.

Meanwhile, Cricket Association of Bihar secretary Aditya Verma expressed hope that the panel would be taking help from some other former cricketers for this probe.

Though we can’t suggest the name as honourable court has left on the committee to decide but there are well known former players like Dilip Vengsarkar, Mohinder Amarnath and Bishen Singh Bedi, who can assist the Mudgal committee. These players are of great stature and have high integrity,” Verma was quoted as saying by Indian Express.
