New Delhi: Newly-appointed Indian Premier League chairman Ranjib Biswal says it is too early to speculate the future of Chennai Super Kings in the cash-rich T20 league. In an exclusive chat with on Wednesday from Bhubaneswar, Biswal said: "It's too early to say CSK will be banned because one of their team members is facing charges of corruption. We will go by the rule book and will not rush into making a legally wrong decision."

Welcoming the Supreme Court appointed three-member panel that will probe allegations of spot-fixing and betting in IPL 2013, Biswal said: "This will be an independent probe and done by legally astute men. The Board of Control for Cricket in India and the IPL governing council will respect the decision made by the panel and we will follow their recommendations."

The Supreme Court on Tuesday formed a three-member panel, headed by former High Court judge Mukul Mudgal, to investigate allegations of corruption in IPL 2013. The panel includes senior advocate and additional solicitor general L Nageshwar Rao and Assam Cricket Association member Niloy Dutta. The panel will have four months to submit their report.
