The Supreme Court on Thursday announced that the future of troubled franshises of the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR), will be decided by a separate committee which will have former justices of the apex court.
According to the apex court, Justice Lodha, Justice Ravindran and Justice Bhan will be in that committee. This will be the judicial committee that will decide on the fate of the IPL teams, whose co-owners were said to be involved in betting.
The Supreme Court of India on Thursday also cleared the troubled Indian cricket administrator N Srinivasan on charges of cover-up in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal. Supreme Court passed the information during the hearing on the matter, as it is expected to announce its judgement.
In November 2014, the Supreme Court observed that the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK) should be disqualified without any enquiry or probe according to reports emerging on Thursday. The SC stated that there were too many ambiguities surrounding the entire IPL spot-fixing case, which should hold enough grounds for the disqualification of the franchise.
“We want to unravel the truth surrounding the owner of India cements,” said the apex court in a statement, seeking details of N Srinivasan’s family holdings in the company. The court also sought a response from N Srinivasan and gave the BCCI to initiate action against Srinivasan, according to reports by Bloomberg TV.
