New Delhi: May 21, 2013

The Supreme Court on Tuesday, directed a one-man committee appointed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to submit its report within 15 days on the spot-fixing scandal.

This comes on the day when they refused to ban the remaining IPL matches based on a PIL filed by an NGO, but went on to slam the BCCI.

In a sensational development last thursday, Indian paceman S Sreesanth and two of his Rajasthan Royals teammates Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were arrested by the Delhi police on the charges of spot-fixing in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013.
