srinivassan-dhoniNEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Wednesday revealed that the Mudgal committee report on IPL spot-fixing has named N Srinivasan and 12 eminent cricketers.

The SC said that it is not inclined to order a CBI or SIT probe into the allegations as it would sully the image of reputed cricketers and undermine autonomy of cricket board.

Srinivasan and Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni had challenged the Justice Mudgal panel inference that both had lied about Gurunath Meiyappan’s role in the CSK.

The SC asked the Mudgal panel to engage a counsel to meet the charge of recording of evidence levelled by Srinivasan and Dhoni.

But, the SC is firm that the sealed cover allegation must be investigated thoroughly, given their serious nature.

The SC also was firm that till investigation were over, Srinivasan must stay out of the BCCI.

Interim BCCI president Sunil Gavaskar has written to the SC saying he can not take a decision on removal or continuance of Sundar Raman as chief operating officer of IPL.

The SC decided to continue with Sundar Raman as the IPL has begun.
