New Delhi, Apr 29 IBNS | 3 months ago

The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved its order on the formation of three member panel that would investigate the allegations of betting and spot-fixing during the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) last year.


"The Supreme Court has reserved its order on the formation of new panel headed by Justice Mukul Mudgal to continue probing the betting and fixing allegations in the Indian Premier League, while the BCCI called the findings submitted so far as erroneous," reported CNN-IBN.

"Resuming hearing in the petition filed by Bihar Cricket Association chief Aditya Verma, the court heard both sides on Tuesday but reserved its order on the formation of the panel even as BCCI asked for a fresh probe and reinstatement of ousted N Srinivasan as the board's president," said the news channel.

In the wake of the Supreme Court's observation on its suspended president N Srinivasan in connection with the IPL spot fixing scandal, the BCCI held its emergent Working Committee meeting in Mumbai on Apr 20 where the decision on the three-member panel was taken.

This came after Supreme Court revealed that Srinivasan has been named among 13 other people in the sealed report submitted by the Justice Mukul Mudgal committee in connection with the spot fixing scandal.

The apex court, thereby, said that Srinivasan cannot perform any duties of BCCI and that its interim order of Mar 28 will stand.

The court asked the BCCI to reply on how it will conduct a probe into the match-fixing and betting allegations against those named in the report.
