New Delhi: The BCCI on Tuesday has opposed a probe by the Justice Mukul Mudgal panel into the IPL match-fixing and betting scandal. The Supreme Court has now reserved the order on constituting a probe panel to investigate allegations against N. Srinivasan and 12 cricketers in scam that rocked Indian cricket last year. BCCI's lawyers urged the two-judge Supreme Court bench to order a fresh probe into the allegations against Srinivasan and other cricketers linked with the scam.

BCCI's lawyers also requested the court to reinstate Srinivasan as Board chief till investigations are over. (Recap read: When Supreme Court rejected appeal to have Srinivasan reinstated)

The Supreme Court on Tuesday was expected to formally hand over the investigation to former judge Justice Mukul Mudgal. The Mudgal panel, which submitted its request for assistance in the probe, said it would take at least four months to complete another round of investigation. Justice Mudgal has asked for the inclusion of retired special director of CBI M.L. Sharma on his panel. The court's directive on the new panel is awaited.
