The Supreme Court on Friday declined releasing the transcript of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s deposition before the Justice Mukul Mudgal-headed Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal committee’s report to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

According to NDTV, a two-judge bench consisting Justice AK Patnaik and Justice JS Khehar told the lawyers of BCCI that the wouold examine the need of providing the transcript to the board before the hearing on the matter on April 16.

The BCCI on Wednesday had moved to the 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 wanted to monitor the audio recordings of the Indian skipper and N Srinivasan, who has stepped aside as board chief and IPL COO Sundar Raman.

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.
