The BCCI probe into the betting scandal in T20 cricket league, which had given a clean chit to the BCCI President N Srinivasan and his son-in-law Gurunath Myeppan, has been declared illegal by the Bombay High Court. The BCCI had appointed two retired High Court judges, Jayaram Chouta and R. Balasubramanian, to conduct an internal probe into the involvement of its members or of IPL owners after allegations of spot-fixing and gambling during T20 matches.

 

 

 

The court has ordered the BCCI to set up a fresh probe panel. The probe ordered by the cricket board had, predictably, found no wrongdoing, clearing the way for the return of BCCI president N. Srinivasan.

 

 

 

Srinivasan had stepped aside temporarily as president after his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan was arrested over alleged links with illegal bookiess. Meiyappan is the owner of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings, a team bought by Srinivasan's India Cements.
