Mumbai: May 31, 2013

BCCI did not receive any warning from International Cricket Council’s (ICC) anti-corruption unit on Gurunath Meiyappan according to N Srinivasan.

BCCI chief told PTI in wake of the current allegations. “I have checked with BCCI officials, we have never received any warning,” said Srinivasan.

CNN IBN claims to have transcripts of Meiyappan giving instructions about specific bets regarding how many runs will be conceded in an over.

Meanwhile, Times Now reports that the ICC had warned Meiyappan himself in early April 2013 about his high-profile links in the betting world. It isn’t clear whether Meiyappan had informed father-in-law and BCCI President N Srinivasan of the warning.

Chennai Super Kings team principal Meiyappan was arrested by the Mumbai police on May 24 for his alleged role in the India Premier League 2013 spot-fixing controversy and the betting racket related to it.

There is no confirmation yet from the ICC.
