Indian Premier League Chief Executive Officer Sundar Raman is reportedly under pressure to quit. With the Supreme Court inquiry committee linking him to the IPL betting and match-fixing scandal, Sundar Raman's credibility is much at stake. Media reports suggest that he may 'resign' this week.
On Wednesday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India's lawyers requested the Supreme Court to release transcripts of the tapes allegedly containing conversations between bookies and Sundar Raman, Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni and ousted Board chief N. Srinivasan. The tapes were submitted to the Supreme Court in a sealed envelope by the inquiry committee headed by Justice Mukul Mudgal on February 10.
The 41-year-old Sundar Raman has been with the IPL ever since its inception. He was known as Lalit Modi's Man Friday but when the former IPL commissioner was booted out from the BCCI, Sundar Raman became a Srinivasan 'loyalist.'
