After the Supreme Court on Tuesday formed a three-member committee, headed by former Chief Justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court Mukul Mudgal, to investigate allegations of corruption against Chennai Super King's Gurunath Meiyappan, a fresh interlocutory application could keep CSK and Rajasthan Royals away from the IPL auctions scheduled early next year.

The Cricket Association of Bihar, whose Special Leave Petition finally led to the Supreme Court appointing the Mudgal committee, is in no mood to rest as it now plans to file a fresh (but related to its earlier appeals against IPL corruption) plea to stop CSK and Royals from taking part in the 2014 IPL auction. Speaking to on Thursday, Aditya Verma, the secretary of the Bihar association said a fresh interim appeal will be filed in the Supreme Court after the Durga Puja vacation.

"Yes, we are planning to file it on October 17 once the court reopens after the break. We want to keep the pressure going and now that the Supreme Court has mentioned Meiyappan in its order, there is no reason why CSK should not be banned from the IPL," Verma said.
