So we have to wait until March 25 to know about the details of the sealed envelope and also what is likely for the Chennai Super Kings.
The hearing has been adjourned today. Supreme Court has now moved it to March 25, which is 18 days from now. Times Now reported this.

Times Now has reported that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has filed an affidavit before the Supreme Court of India. In the affidavit, they have asked the Supreme Court to refrain from opening the envelope that contains the names of the six players alleged to have been involved in fixing related misdemeanours. They have also claimed that Gurunath Meiyappan was merely a ‘Team Official’ of the Chennai Super Kings and not an owner. As a result, Chennai does not entail expulsion.

The Franchise Agreement stipulates that if a franchise owner or an official is involved in wrongdoing, the franchise could be expelled. According to the Clause 11.3 (c) of the IPL Franchise Agreement: The Franchisee, any Franchisee Group Company and/or any Owner acts in any way which has a material adverse effect upon the reputation or standing of the League, BCCI-IPL, BCCI, the Franchisee, the Team (or any other team in the League) and/or the game of cricket.


Welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of the latest developments of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing controversy. The Mudgal committee report which was submitted last month, has apparently handed an envelope to the Supreme Court, which features names of six players who are allegedly involved in the misdemeanours. Today, the Supreme Court is to resume the hearing and the envelope would be opened. This is surely going to rock Indian cricket today as some big names may pop up. We will bring to you all the latest developments and also mull what the repercussions could be.
