The Supreme Court, on Thursday, declared Raj Kundra, co-owner of Rajasthan Royals, and Chennai Super Kings official Gurunath Meiyappan, were guilty of betting during the sixth season of Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2013.
The court has given a clean chit to BCCI President N Srinivasan, but they said that he cannot contest elections for the cricket board’s governing body. He can either be the owner of the Chennai Super Kings franchise or BCCI President.
The court appointed a three-member committee of former apex court judges, headed by former chief justice R.M. Lodha, to decide the quantum of punishment that has to be awarded to Meiyappan and Kundra for their involvement in betting and decide on the fate of their respective franchises – Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings.
The punishment would not only remain confined to them but extend to their franchises too.
