Noose tightens around Gurunath, Rauf removed

The mess in IPL just got bigger as Mumbai Police on Thursday ordered Gurunath Meiyappan, son-in-law of Indian cricket board chief N. Srinivasan, to get in touch with them by Friday evening, while top Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf, who has been officiating in IPL matches, was removed from next month’s ICC Champions Trophy.

A team of Mumbai police led by Investigating Officer Nandkumar Gopale served the orders at the Chennai residence of Meiyappan, chief executive of Chennai Super Kings team of the IPL, in the evening, a Mumbai police official said. There mess got deeper by the evening as ICC removed Rauf from next month’s Champions Trophy in England and Wales after his name cropped up in the IPL spot-fixing scandal. His removal from the Champions trophy was surprising as his name hasn’t been linked directly with the scandal. In Chennai, a team of four Mumbai police personnel turned up at Meiyappan’s residence without much hope. Meiyappan will have to produce himself  on Monday.
