The Mudgal Committee Report on the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing controversy will come up for hearing before the Supreme Court of India at 1 PM IST. The report was submitted to the Supreme Court on February 10, 2014.
NDTV reported that the court has listed the matter to come before them today and that the 170-page document contains the statements of former players, current players, officials etc.
The committee, which was led by Justice Mukul Mudgal, indicted Gurunath Meiyappan, the son-in-law of BCCI President N Srinivasan. Meiyappan was said to be the Team Principal of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), a claim that was denied by the franchise. The report established that he was indeed a part of the franchise.
It is said that Chennai’s fate could be in the balance with this report coming up for hearing. If wrongdoing is established, they may well face expulsion from the IPL as the rules stipulate.
