"The honourable Supreme Court has not said anything against me. I also do not think there is any evidence against me. If there was anything against me, the (court) order would have been different," Srinivasan told Mumbai Mirror. The probe report, submitted by Justice Mukul Mudgal, is expected to be in the public domain on Monday. (Indian player breaks down before Mudgal committee)
A special Bench, comprising justice TS Thakur and FM Kalifullah, on Friday named Srinivasan, Chennai Super Kings team principal Gurunath Meiyappan, Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra and former IPL chief executive Sundar Raman among those who were being probed by the Justice Mukul Mudgal committee. There are 13 names under investigation and that includes current and former players.
