New Delhi: Apr 9, 2014

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has moved Supreme Court seeking permission to examine MS Dhoni‘s deposition before the Mudgal Committee that is investigating the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting and fixing scandal.

The BCCI wants to monitor the audio recordings of the Indian skipper, N Srinivasan, who has stepped aside as board chief and IPL COO Sundar Raman. The apex court has listed the matter for Friday.

Senior advocate Harish Salve, who has been representing Aditya Verma of the Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), had earlier accused the Chennai Super Kings captain of lying about the role of Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan in betting and match-fixing scandal during the last edition of the cash-rich league.

“Dhoni lied about Gurunath Meiyappan role; there was no need for Dhoni to lie and it is important to have independent probe into the IPL irregularities,” Salve had earlier told CNN-IBN after the Supreme Court ordered sweeping changes in BCCI’s administration.

The Indian board, however, has defended Dhoni saying that he has done no wrong and is innocent.

The Supreme Court ordered Srinivasan to step aside as BCCI president, while installing lSunil Gavaskar as working president but only for the duration of IPL 7. For issues related to the BCCI, the SC appointed Shivlal Yadav as the board president.
