The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is itching to know the names of the 10 players featured in the previous Indian Premier League (IPL) probe submitted by Justice Mukul Mudgal in February last year. It is said that the lawyers from BCCI are keen to mention this in the court in its further hearings in Supreme Court. So far only 3 out of the 10 names have been unveiled in the Justice Mudgal report. However, the remaining 10 names are yet to be revealed out in the open.

“We want those names to come out. Why were those names not made public? It’s after all a Supreme Court-appointed committee. Fans should know all the names which appeared in the Justice Mudgal’s probe report,” a BCCI official told TOI on Wednesday.

The board did not show any interest in the previous hearings. Thus, it comes as a surprise that the board, all of a sudden, wants to know the names. The BCCI then was headed by N Srinivasan and had taken a different stand on this back in 2014. It had then requested Supreme Court not to reveal the names in public, as it would hamper its prestige. BCCI not doing any business; subject to rule of law: Supreme Court told

There were lots of speculative names that would have made headlines for the right or wrong reasons. Hence, the board has decided to keep it low profile until this issue reaches it penultimate stage.
