New Delhi: Ravi Sawani, who heads the Board of Control for Cricket in India's newly-formed anti-corruption wing, submitted a report to N Srinivasan after he completed his inquiry into corruption allegations levelled against five uncapped Indian players during the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League.
Shalabh Srivastava, Mohnish Mishra, TP Sudhindra, Amit Yadav and Abhinav Bali featured in a sting operation by a television channel during IPL 5. Sudhindra was caught on camera allegedly negotiating a deal worth Rs 40,000 to bowl a no-ball in a Madhya Pradesh Premier League T20 match, while Mishra was caught discussing an out-of-turn IPL contract worth more than his fixed slab.
N Srinivasan, the BCCI president, and Arun Jaitley and Niranjan Shah, both senior functionaries of the BCCI, are expected to study the report, which was prepared after Sawani held hearings with all the five players in question.
The sting operation also exposed the possibility of spot-fixing in domestic cricket, where women were allegedly used to entice cricketers.
In the wake of the incident, several former cricketers and sports ministry officials have called for strong action to help curb corruption and other such practices in the IPL.
