New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday issued notices to the BCCI, N Srinivasan, his company India Cements which owns Indian Premier League team Chennai Super Kings, and Rajasthan Royals on a plea challenging Bombay High court order refusing to appoint a fresh committee to probe IPL spot-fixing scam.

A bench headed by Justice A K Patnaik agreed to hear the appeal filed by Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) against the high court verdict and clubbed it with the petition of BCCI which had challenged the judgement declaring as illegal the Indian cricket board's two-member probe panel set up to look into spot-fixing and betting charges in the IPL tournament.
