New Delhi: The Indian cricket board says the "clean chit" given by a probe panel to the son-in-law of N Srinivasan - who was forced to step aside as board chief in June - and Rajasthan Royal's owner Raj Kundra will not stand if police investigations find them guilty of spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The panel's report, which is being criticized by many as "eyewash", said it found no evidence against the entities it was investigating - Mr Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals' co-owner Raj Kundra. Sources say it has also cleared the Chennai Super Kings owned by Mr Srinivasan's India Cements. (Also read: Now, West India vs Pak ODIs under anti-corruption glare)
The panel's "clean chit" to his son-in-law may strengthen Mr Srinivasan's case for a comeback to the post that he temporarily relinquished under immense pressure, but the board may not make it easy for him.
