IPL 2014 auction to go as per schedule

Rajiv Shukla has stated that the Indian Premier League auctions will go as per planned and that the mudgal committee report’s verdict finding G Meiyappan guilty of match-fixing charges will have no bearing on the IPL auctions.

“Any decision taken in the IPL auction of players should be without prejudice to the order that may be passed by this court,” a bench comprising justices AK Patnaik and FMI Kalifulla said while making it clear that it will look into the response of all stake holders on March 7 on the report of the Committee that inquired into the betting and spot fixing allegations in the last addition of IPL.

The bench made the observation after BCCI submitted that it should hear on March 7 itself an application in which direction has been sought that players’ auction for IPL 2014 should be subject to order passed by it on the report of a committee probing the betting and spot-fixing scam of last championships allegedly involving Gurunath Meiyappan of Chennai Super Kings.

“The good that Supreme Court has done is that the IPL auction was not stopped. It will happen as planned for all the teams in Bangalore (on February 12 and 13),” said BCCI Vice-President Rajeev Shukla, who is also a Union Minister and a former IPL chairman.

Shukla said it is important to wait for the Supreme Court’s directive on the issue before taking any decision.

“Supreme Court is an apex court and it will give some views and we should wait for Supreme Court’s views,” he said.

“We should leave it to Supreme Court what decisions they take. IPL auction will continue, we need to wait for Supreme Court directive.”

The three-member committee, headed by former Punjab & Haryana Chief Justice Mukul Mudgal submitted its report to the Supreme Court after investigating allegations of spot-fixing and betting in the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League, which also involved BCCI President N Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan.

BCCI’s counsel CA Sundaram said if the application is taken up immediately, any observation made by the apex court will have a bearing on the auction taking place on February 12 and 13.
