The Supreme Court on Monday will take up the ultimate report on the Indian Premier League known as IPL spot fixing scandal conformed by a committee led by Retired Justice Mukul Mudgal on 3rd November. The case will decide the future of some of the biggest officer level names in Indian cricket. The former Board of Control for Cricket in India known as BCCI head, Narayanswami Srinivasan’s future will be decided along with that of his son-in law Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra who co-owned Rajasthan Royals.
According to TV reports, two international players’ role could be investigated based on police investigation while two Indian Premier League teams Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings could face possible ending. Last week Retired Justice Mukul Mudgal yielded the final report in a sealed envelope to the Supreme Court and he added that the information was final and based on the proofs by the enquiry team.
The Retired Justice Mukul Mudgal led committee, known as Mudgal committee was scheduled by the Supreme Court to enquiry the betting and fixing scam in the Indian Premier League. The report was yielded almost six months after the apex court has asked BB Mishra who is Indian Police Service Officer and the police departments in Mumbai, Delhi, and Chennai to assist the enquiry. Mishra has had weighty conversations with conjectured players along with Indian Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, agents of cricketers and Board of Control of Cricket in India known as BCCI functionaries. He is helped by a police team inquisitor in the last few months. They were questioned about the sixth part of the Indian Premier League, their business interests, corporate partnerships, and power wielded by franchise officials.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s annual general meeting is going to be held on 20th November. The result of the Mudgal Committee report is expected to have an effect on the voting pattern and on Srinivasan’s fate as a cricket administrator.
The Supreme Court announced that the Indian Premier League 2013 spot-fixing and betting case was adjourned till 14th November, 2014.
