New Delhi: The apex court-appointed Justice R M Lodha panel, which had suggested suspension of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals for two years from participating in IPL, today submitted its report to the Supreme Court registry.
The report, which deals with various aspects relating to the functioning of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), will be considered by the bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur at a later stage.
The panel’s report was submitted by advocate Gopal Shankar Narayan to the Supreme Court registry. Earlier, the panel had suspended star-studded Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the most successful team of IPL, and Rajasthan Royals for two years from the League in a clean up of cricket following the 2013 betting scam involving their top officials Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra.
Son-in-law of the then BCCI chief N Srinivasan, Meiyappan, a former Team Principal of India Cements Ltd (ICL) owned franchise CSK and Kundra, co-owner of Jaipur IPL that runs Rajasthan Royals (RR), were suspended for life from any matches conducted by BCCI.
