New Delhi:  The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) filed an appeal in the Supreme Court on Monday, challenging the Bombay High court's order deeming IPL probe panel as 'illegal and unconstitutional.'

In its Special Leave Petition (SPL), BCCI maintains that the probe panel was legal and was in accordance with the rules of the Board. It also says that the High Court's ruling that the BCCI did not follow rules was erranous. The cricket board now wants a stay on the judgement.

Bombay High Court last month had declared that the probe panel constituted by BCCI to look into allegations of spot-fixing was illegal and unconstitutional. This after the two-member panel - consisting of retired High Court judges - had given a clean chit to Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, saying the two franchises and their respective owners were not guilty of spot-fixing.

This led to Bihar Cricket Association's Aditya Verma filing a PIL, citing conflict of interest. On Monday however, BCCI said in its petition that the High Court should not have entertained the PIL as 'no fundamental rights of the petitioner has been violated.'

The decision to appeal against Bombay High Court's ruling was taken last week when the IPL Governing Council met in New Delhi. It now, however, has also learnt that thr Bihar Cricket Association too has filed a caveat in the apex court.
