Justice Mukul Mudgal panel on Monday submitted its final probe report in a sealed envelope on betting and fixing scandal in 2013 Indian Premier League to a special Supreme Court bench. The bench comprising Justice T.S. Thakur and Ibrahim Kalifulla will hear the case on November 10, a day that could be a game-changer in Indian cricket.
The focus is on Board of Control for Cricket in India's president-in-exile N. Srinivasan, one of the 13 names investigated by Justice Mudgal, a former High Court judge, and his team. Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, who was the team principal of Chennai Super Kings, has already been indicted on betting charges by Mudgal's first report submitted in February.
A clutch of high-profile cricketers are also under the scanner. The future of Srinivasan in cricket administration will depend on how the Supreme Court interprets the findings.
