The Board also informed the court that it has decided to constitute a three-member panel to further probe the scandal but the bench said it will pass the order after hearing all the parties and after considering Justice Mudgal Committee’s reply.
The BCCI had suggested names of former India all-rounder Ravi Shastri, former Calcutta High Court Chief Justice J N Patel and ex-CBI Director R K Raghavan as members of the probe committee.
The SC had directed the BCCI to suggest names of persons who will conduct a “fair probe” into the IPL VI spot-fixing and betting scandal.
During the hearing, the apex court allowed access of audio transcripts of statements made by N Srinivasan and M S Dhoni before the IPL probe panel to BCCI and the ousted chief.
The court asked Justice Mudgal Committee to submit audio recordings of its proceedings before apex court’s Secretary General.
It also directed BCCI and Srinivasan not to reveal anything about the contents of audio recordings to anyone. “Any content of the audio recording going out means cricket would be ‘blackened’ in the country,” the court said.
