Secretary of the Cricket Association of Bihar and petitioner in the IPL spot-fixing case, Aditya Verma has expressed that the probe committee can contain some former Indian cricketers like Dilip Vengsarkar, Mohinder Amarnath and Bishan Singh Bedi.
“Though we can’t suggest the name as honorable court has left on the committee to decide but there are well known former players like Dilip Vengsarkar, Mohinder Amarnath and Bishen Singh Bedi, who can assist the Mudgal committee. These players are of great stature and have high integrity,”Verma was quoted as saying by Indian Express.
Vengsarkar is ready if the court asks him to step in. “Of course, if the probe committee needs my help, I’m always ready for it. Since my retirement I have always worked on development of cricket and still continuing to do so. I’m always there for any kind of advice and there is no question of saying no, if the committee offers me,” Vengsarkar said to the newspaper.
On Friday, the Supreme Court gave a green signal to Justice Mukul Mudgal to continue with the investigation of the spot-fixing scandal. According to the report, Nilay Dutta and L Nageshwar Rao will continue to be part of the probe panel with Justice Mudgal. The panel will be assisted by the police selected by them from Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai.
