BCCI, judges to discuss mode of operation
Board of Control for Cricket in India official Prof Ratnakar Shetty will discuss with the two judges appointed to inquire into the complaints against Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra, and the owners of CSK and Rajasthan Royals, the “preferred mode of operation” in the IPL-6 spot-fixing and betting scandal.
The two judges who comprise the probe panel will meet in person for the first time in Bangalore on the morrow.
“The panel will discuss its preferred mode of operation. It will be provided with all the operational and administrative assistance,” Shetty, BCCI’s general manager for game development, was quoted as saying by ‘ESPNcricinfo’.
It’s been almost a month since Justice T Jayaram Chouta and R Balasubramanian were appointed. In what Chouta, the chairman of the commission, called a “preliminary” meeting, the judges are likely to specify their requirements. Shetty, and the members of the BCCI’s legal team, have already handed over the necessary documents to Chowta to begin the process.
Following the arrests of three Rajasthan Royals cricketers and that of Meiyappan, CSK Team Principal and BCCI President N Srinivasan’s son-in-law, the following week, the board had announced a three-member commission to conduct an inquiry.
However, following Sanjay Jagdale’s resignation as BCCI secretary and the subsequent withdrawal from the panel, it was reconstituted on June 10.
