The BCCI in all likelihood will appeal to the Supreme Court to give them some more time to file a comprehensive investigative report on the scandals during the sixth edition of IPL.

The working committee members of the BCCI were unanimous in their opinion that to do justice to the report that will be submitted to Supreme Court,they would need some more time.

“Our legal counsel will request the Supreme Court to provide with some more time as the investigations haven’t yet reached it’s logical conclusion. We still need some more time before we can submit the report that has been sought by the SC,” a senior BCCI office-bearer and working committee member said.

A Bench of Mr Justice B S Chauhan and Mr Justice Dipak Misra had last month,directed the BCCI to submit its report within 15 days and asked them to bring the errant teams and players to book on the basis of the report.

“Since the SC pulled up the BCCI for lackadaisical approach,the members feel that we should have all ends covered before we are in a position to submit the report. If you look at the incidents that have occured,15 days is not good enough time to complete a detailed probe. The report that’s going to be submitted will be detailed and exhaustive,” the member said.
