The Supreme Court of India said on Thursday that it will think hard for the ‘benefit of cricket’ and will then pass any order in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal.

 

“We will have to think hard for the benefit of cricket and will have to pass order,” Press Trust of India (PTI) quoted the Supreme Court as saying.

 

The hearing of the matter began in the apex court at around 10.30am on Thursday, with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) proposing to initiate disciplinary proceedings as per the recommendations of the Justice Mudgal Committee reports.

 

The Board and its president have a big day ahead as the apex court will hear the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing and betting controversy case.
