New Delhi: Sep 13, 2013

Beleaguered Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President N Srinivasan, who was forced to step aside due to the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing scandal, has arrived at New Delhi to attend the Board’s Disciplinary Committee meeting to deliberate on the fate of the cricketers implicated in the scandal on Friday.

Srinivasan is part of the committee, which is headed by Arun Jaitley and also comprises Niranjan Shah. Both Jaitley and Shah are board vice presidents.

The committee will deliberate on BCCI Anti-Corruption Unit chief Ravi Sawani’s report on the scam that shamed the Twenty20 league.

The one-man Sawani panel investigated allegations that the three players conceded a pre-determined number of runs per over in exchange for money during the IPL this year.

The players, who also served jail time after being arrested by the Delhi Police, are Test pacer S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan. Sawani has reportedly held the trio guilty in his investigative report

All three of them played for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL but their contracts were terminated by the franchise after the scandal broke out. The trio has already arrived for the meeting after being summoned by the committee.

After examining Sawani’s report, the Disciplinary Committee will present the findings at the BCCI annual general meeting to be held on September 29.

Sawani had earlier submitted an interim report, which was put on hold by the BCCI as he had not spoken to Chandila, who was in judicial custody till a few days ago.

Chandila, who was granted bail on August 6 for two days to perform the last rites of his deceased brother, has denied the charges. The other two implicated players have also maintained their innocence after coming out on bail.

Srinivasan, meanwhile, suffered a legal setback on Thursday when the Supreme Court deferred for two weeks hearing on petitions relating to controversy over the appointment of panel to probe the IPL spot-fixing scam in which BCCI has challenged the Bombay High Court order holding as illegal board’s two-member committee.
