IPL 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal: 12 cricketers, 3 officials named in Mudgal Committee report

The reports submitted by a special Supreme Court-formed committee headed by Justice Mukul Mudgal reportedly has 12-13 cricketers, not six as it is believed. The Supreme Court is all set to resume the hearing on the matter on April 16, 2014.

According to the Indian Express, these players are not only from the teams already in question, i.e. Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, which implies that there could be about five teams under the cloud of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal.

The Delhi police had also hinted the same when the probe was launched last year. According to a source familiar with the allegations in the report submitted by the committee, there are three IPL officials as well.

“These are top office-bearers who have been closely involved in the organisation of the IPL for several years,” the source said. The report added that based on testimonies of witnesses, there are allegations against team owners other than of Chennai and Rajasthan. The Mudgal panel, adopting a cautious approach, informed the court that allegations against them have not been substantiated.

Initiating a clean up, the Supreme Court last month took the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) out of N Srinivasan‘s grip and handed it over to legendary player Sunil Gavaskar during upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL)  7 but allowed Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals to play in the tournament. While posting the case for hearing on April 16, the Court also directed that the senior most Vice President of the Board, Shivlal Yadav, will be looking after the other affairs of BCCI.

A bench of justices AK Patnaik and FM Ibrahim Kalifulla, which had yesterday proposed barring CSK and RR in the tournament, did not bar them from playing in the matches along with six other teams in the Indian Premier League tournament beginning April 16 in Dubai.

It also said that Gavaskar will have to get out of the contract with BCCI for commentary in order to discharge the duty assigned by the court. It directed BCCI to adequately compensate the veteran cricketer, PTI reported.
