Ravi Sawani submits report on spot-fixing probe
CBI's former officer Ravi Sawani, a former ICC Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) chief, has submitted his report on the TV sting operation conducted during the IPL-V to BCCI
The report will now be referred to the Board’s disciplinary panel, IPL chief Rajiv Shukla said yesterday.
“He has submitted his report to the BCCI president (N Srinivasan). As per the procedure, that report will be referred to the disciplinary committee of the BCCI. It will consider the recommendations of Ravi Sawani,” Shukla said after Governing Council meeting.
It may be recalled, five uncapped Indian cricketers — TP Sudhindra (Deccan Chargers), Mohnish Mishra (Pune Warriors), Amit Yadav (Kings XI Punjab), Shalabh Shrivastava (Kings XI Punjab) and first-class cricketer Abhinav Bali — were allegedly caught indulging in corrupt practices by a television channel.
The three-member disciplinary panel comprises Srinivasan and two BCCI vice-presidents Arun Jaitley and Niranjan Shah who will take a call on the matter.
