IPL The SC has been given the names of these players, whose actions are being pored over, in a sealed envelope.

Up to six “Indian capped” players — including one currently in the team — are expected to come under the scanner for their alleged roles in the IPL betting and spot-fixing scandal as their names have come up in the Mudgal Report filed before the Supreme Court on Monday.

The SC has been given the names of these players, whose actions are being pored over, in a sealed envelope.

The report also mentions a journalist, ostensibly linked with the tapes recorded for a sports magazine, who can identify the voice of the Indian player in question. It also states that the journalist has said the player was part of the World Cup-winning team and is still in the team.

“The journalist refused to disclose the names of the Indian players involved. In spite of repeated requests to put the name of the said player in a sealed cover for perusal before the Supreme Court, the journalist appeared terrified and was very reluctant to do so and pleaded that it would be dangerous for the journalist concerned,” the report says.

“It thus appears that names of six prominent Indian capped players are available in tapes in connection with dealings with bookies while two of these prominent Indian capped players have also been named by none other than a former President of BCCI,” it adds.
