He was asked to focus on four officials from the 13 names of which nine were players. <p></p> <p></p>During his course of investigation, Misra came across a phone conversation, allegedly between a bookie and a cricketer but since it wasn't part of his charter. <p></p> <p></p>"It was a phone conversation (between the player and the bookie) that was recorded It would have taken a lot more time (beyond) October 31. There are two voices on the telephone. Allegedly one is that of the player and the other one is of the bookie. If I have to investigate, I have to take voice samples of the player and the voice samples of the bookie. Send it for forensic opinion. That takes a month. And then, why do I have to do it when it was not part of my charter? It could have been done if we had more time We didn t get an occasion for the player and the bookie to be confronted. I managed to speak to the bookie. He did say he was in touch with the player, he was quoted as saying by the Indian Express on Thursday. <p></p> <p></p>He further revealed that the bookie had agreed to provide evidence but backed out at the last minute. "I would have confronted the player with the information I got from the bookie. But (that) evidence didn't come from the bookie though I knew the evidence existed, I could not pursue it. I knew of this specific instance where the bookie had confided in somebody else, I got that information, the bookie accepted that information before me also, he was willing to give the evidence but in the last minute he decided not to," he said. <p></p> <p></p>The information related to the nine players is not yet known. However, the investigation about the four officials - N Srinivasan (former BCCI president), Gurunath Meiyappan (Former CSK Team Principle), Raj Kundra (former owner of Rajasthan Royals) and Sundar Raman (former IPL COO) has been made public.
