The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court to get the audio recordings of statements made by beleaguered chief N Srinivasan and Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni before the court panel.

The move by the cricketing body comes in the wake of controversy over the apex court panel holding that Srinivasan and Dhoni lied over the role of Gurunath Meiyappan in Chennai Super Kings.

BCCI on the last date refuted Dhoni having ever told the panel that Meiyappan was only a cricket enthusiast and had nothing to do with CSK.

A bench led by Justice A K Patnaik allowed the BCCI to file the application seeking the audio tapes, which currently lie with the court in a sealed cover.

Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan had been indicted for betting in IPL 2013 by the SC-appointed probe panel, prompting the bench to give Srinivasan an ultimatum to step down or risk being removed.
