BCCI extends full support to Supreme Court’s verdict

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) welcomed the Supreme Court’s (SC) decision to form a three-member committee to decide on the punishment to Indian Premier League (IPL) franchisees Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) for their involvement in betting and spot-fixing scandal. The committee will consist of top jurors who have to pass their judgement in the next six months.

The BCCI tweeted:

BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel in a press release said, “The BCCI welcomes the order of the Honourable Supreme Court, which has put to rest the uncertainty, that has prevailed in the recent past.

The BCCI will extend its unstinted cooperation to the three-member committee appointed by the Honourable Supreme Court.

The Annual General Body meeting of the BCCI which also includes the election of the office bearers will be held in accordance with the directions and timelines as stipulated by the Honourable Supreme Court.”

The apex court on Thursday barred suspended BCCI president N Srinivasan from standing in the next year’s election and also found Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajathan Royals (RR) co-owner Raj Kundra guilty of betting.
