Chennai Super Kings ‘cricket enthusiast’ Gurunath Meiyappan  was found guilty of match-fixing in Indian Premier League 2013 by the Mudgal committee report.

 

Justice Mukul Mudgal report on Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing, which was submitted on Monday to the Supreme Court, found Meiyappan guilty of betting and match-fixing.

 

However, the report said that allegations of fixing requires further investigation. It also rejected Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chief N Srinivasan‘s contention that Meiyappan was merely a cricket enthusiast and found the latter to be the face of Chennai Super Kings.

 

The report also found conflict of interest on Srinivasan’s part for holding post of BCCI chief and ownership of IPL franchisee.

 

The committee gives ten-point suggestion to Supreme Court for making cricket a “cleaner” game and eliminate evil of spot and match-fixing.

 

Allegations of betting and spot-fixing against Rajasthan Royals’ owner Raj Kundra need to be further investigated, the report said.
