Bombay High Court today has declared the just concluded BCCI probe in the IPL Spot fixing as illegal and unconstitutional. It can be recalled that the 2-member probe panel set up by the BCCI had given clean chits to Chennai Super Kings Owner – Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals’ owner Raj Kundra in the fixing scandal.

The high court hearing comes following a public interest litigation filed by Cricket Association of Bihar challenging the constitution of the two-member probe panel. The PIL had alleged blatant bias by former BCCI President N Srinivasan, who is also the Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of India Cements, the company that owns the Chennai Super Kings. Gurunath Meiyappan is also the son-in-law of N Srinivasan which led the latter to step down from the BCCI Presidentship.

The BCCI which is currently run by Jagmohan Dalmiya will have to go into a huddle again to chalk out their next moves. Had the Bombay High Court not come in their way, N Srinivasan was all set to return as the BCCI President.
