Clean chit to Gurunath Meiyappan has made the way for N. Srinivasan to return to the post of BCCI president.
“There’s no evidence of any wrongdoing found by the judges against Raj Kundra, India Cements and Rajasthan Royals. The report will now be forwarded to the IPL governing council which will take a final decision when it meets on August 2 in New Delhi,” Niranjan Shah, vice-president of BCCI, told reporters on Sunday.
A senior BCCI official, who did not wish to be named, said that as Srinivasan had offered to step aside on his own, it has been left to him to decide if he wants to get back as president of the board. “According to the probe report, there is no connection between Meiyappan’s betting and CSK,” the official added. In his case, the probe committee has found evidence of betting, but it doesn’t amount to fixing.
Though Mumbai Police refused to react to the clean chit given to Meiyappan, sources in the police department said the court case against Meiyappan and Vindoo Dara Singh will continue.
