The Justice Mukul Mudgal led committee yielded its final report on the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL) Spot fixing dispute at the Supreme Court on Monday. The committee was appointed in 2013 to investigate the alleged betting connections between bookies on one hand and players and officials on the other.

 The discovery on the report could have a serious effect on the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), as well as the Indian Premiere League team Chennai Super Kings (CSK), International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman Narayanswami Srinivasan, and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team main Gurunath Meiyappan.

 The apex court asked the police departments in Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai under Indian Police Service Officer B.B. Mishra to conduct an enquiry in to the matter.

 The Supreme Court had felt the requirements to dig inside for information on the scandal after the Mudgal panel’s initial report had mentioned the names of 13 important cricket officials and players in a sealed envelope, against whom allegations ranging from corruption to conflict of interest had been made.

 Mishra has had substantial interactions with suspected players, including Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, agents of cricketers and Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) functionaries. He is assisted by a team of police investigators in the last few months. They were interrogated about the sixth season of the IPL, their corporate partnerships, business interests and power wielded by franchise officials.

 Dhoni was especially asked about Gurunath Meiyappan’s part in the Indian Premiere League (IPL) team Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Gurunath Meiyappan, was arrested over allegations of gambling on IPL games. He is the son-in-law of International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman Narayanswami Srinivasan.
