Day of reckoning as Supreme Court set to take up IPL 6 probe report

The Supreme Court on Monday will take up the final report on the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing scam submitted by a committee headed by Justice (Retired) Mukul Mudgal on November 3.

On Monday, the fate of former BCCI boss, N Srinivasan will be decided along with that of his son-in law Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra, co-owner of Rajasthan Royals.

According to television reports, two international players' role could be examined based on police probe, while two IPL teams-Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals-could face possible termination.

Last week, Justice (retd) Mudgal submitted the final report in a sealed cover to the Supreme Court, adding that the information was final and based on the findings by the investigating team.

The Justice Mukul Mudgal-led committee was appointed by the Supreme Court to investigate the fixing and betting scandal in the IPL.

The report was submitted almost six months after the apex court had asked Indian Police Service officer BB Mishra and the police departments in Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai to assist in the investigation.

Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI's) annual general meeting is scheduled to be held on November 20. The outcome of the Mudgal Committee report is expected to have an impact on the voting pattern and on Srinivasan's future as a cricket administrator.
