BCCI boss guilty in fixing probe

Suspended Board of Control for Cricket in India president Narainswamy Srinivasan and three other officials are guilty of "misdemeanours" according to a panel investigating spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League, India's Supreme Court revealed last Friday.

IPL chief executive Sundar Raman, Srinivasan's son-in-law and Chennai Super Kings official, Gurunath Meiyappan, and Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra were the others named by the court.

They were indicted in a report submitted by the Supreme Court-appointed committee led by Justice Mukul Mudgal.

"The report did suggest some misdemeanours," the court said. "The report is in relation to players and to other actors in the drama."

But the court refrained from revealing the players named by the committee.

The court said it was sharing the report with lawyers from both sides, and the four officials should submit their objections within four days.

The court said it will hear arguments on November 24, meaning the BCCI annual general meeting on November 20 will likely be postponed. Srinivasan was up for re-election. He's also the chairman of the International Cricket Council.

"There's no question of Srinivasan contesting unless the issue is resolved," the court said.
