After being appointed as the man in charge of the working group, Shukla said the members will be announced in a day’s time.

“House has entrusted me with responsibility to make a small group that will take 6 weeks to submit a report as to how we implement the order and way forward for IPL.

“Members will be announced tomorrow (on Monday). We have decided to implement Justice Lodha verdict in spirit and decided to work accordingly. All stakeholders have given their opinion, everybody is of the view that the show must go on. And I reiterate that IPL 9 will be bigger and greater,” Shukla told PTI.

The IPL chairman, however, refused to reveal the details of Sunday’s meeting and took a jibe at former BCCI president Shashank Manohar for demanding that CSK and RR be terminated.

“We cannot divulge the deliberations of the meeting. A sub-group has been constituted which will recommend what needs to be done. A Supreme Court-appointed committee has deliberated on it (the IPL scandal) and after it has given its verdict, I don’t think there is scope for anybody else to comment,” he said.
