Indian Premier League betting investigating Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee’s last report raised the hackles off the ICC chairman N Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan.

According to the Indian Express newspaper, Justice Mudgal Committee in its report to the Supreme Court can tell Gurunath Meiyappan Chennai Super Kings was a key officer. Also that he has been involved in betting during IPL 2013. If it happens that might mean that the questions will be raised for the Chennai Super Kings IPL franchise.

Subsequently, the National Narcotics Bureau, deputy director of the country’s highest court, BB Mishra was asked to investigate the case.

The Newspaper writes, Mumbai forensic lab found that the alleged conversation between Meiyappan and Vindu Dara Singh, who is the voice in the tape, he is the son-in-law of N. Srinivasan. Mumbai Police last year had accused Meiyappan of providing crucial information regarding the match and claimed that he bet on the matches with the help of Vindu Dara Singh.

The inquiry committee also found that Meiyappan was not just a cricket enthusiast as proclaimed by his father-in-law N Srinivasan earlier.

According to the IPL rules and regulations, if a franchise owner of an IPL team is involved in betting then that team shall be suspended. Chennai Super Kings might face a similar fate in the coming future.
