IPL fixing: BCCI AGM put on hold after SC reveal big names
The Supreme Court on Friday disclosed the names of four key cricket personalities investigated by the Justice Mudgal Committee for allegations of spot fixing and betting in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

In the wake of the developments, the BCCI annual general meeting (AGM) and the subsequent elections, scheduled for 20 November, were put on hold for another four weeks. BCCI had earlier postponed its AGM and annual polls after the SC on 1 September ignored pleas to reinstate sidelined board chief Srinivasan in his post.

The SC bench on Friday said the Mudgal committee report dealing with the conduct and role of the quartet in the spotlight would be given to these four people as well as to the BCCI and the petitioner Cricket Association of Bihar for their respective rejoinders. The court, however, said the identity of the players named in the report will be held back for the time being.

SC said all the parties will file their objections to the report within four days of its receipt and they will have the liberty to file responses to rival objections in another four days and directed the listing of the matter for 24 November.

The court recorded the statement made by BCCI counsel CA Sundaram that the meeting of the BCCI annual general body which was scheduled to be held 20 Nov will now take place after four weeks. Counsel Salve, who appeared for Cricket Association of Bihar, said he would make all the four persons under probe and application for their impleadment would be filed on Saturday and then they would be furnished with the report of the Mudgal committee.
