Former Indian great batsman Sunil Gavaskar has questioned N Srinivasan’s silence in the whole spot- fixing and betting issue. Gavaskar has also hit out at Srinivasan’s son-in- law Gurunath Meiyyapan, over his involvement in betting.
During an interview with India Today Group, Gavaskar said:
“The full force of the law must come down on Meiyyapan. There are reports which say the Mudgal committee report has found that Srinivasan knew about betting but did not do anything about it. Srinivasan should answer for why he did not act if he knew that a player was guilty.”
Gavaskar also said that there should be zero tolerance against match-fixing and betting and if any player is found guilty of doing such wrong acts then he should be jailed and be banned from the game for lifetime.
“New Zealand has come up with a new law on betting which says that guilty players will be jailed. India should have the same law,” he quoted.
