IPL 2013 Spot-Fixing: BCCI Begins Latest Investigation
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed earlier this week that a three-man commission has been set up to investigate the latest developments in the Indian Premier League 2013 spot-fixing allegations.
The commission will investigate complaints made against Chennai Super Kings team management official Gurunath Meiyappan, India Cements Limited, the owner of Chennai Super Kings and Jaipur IPL Pvt., owners of the Rajasthan Royals.
Meiyappan was arrested earlier this month while the arrests of three current Rajasthan Royals players - Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan - were the first developments in the controversy.
Subsequently, former player Amit Singh was also arrested along with several bookmakers and following reports that elite umpire Asad Rauf was under investigation, the International Cricket Council (ICC) stood him down for the ICC Champions Trophy, which gets underway next week.
The three men charged with investigating the latest developments are Justice T Jayaram Chouta, formerly a Karnataka and Tamil Nadu High Court Judge, Justice R Balasubramaniam, a former Tamil Nadu High Court Judge and BCCI Honorary Secretary Sanjay Jagdale.
