The report said that the betting allegations stand proved against Meiyappan. The report also rejected N. Srinivasan’s contention that Gurunath Meiyappan was merely a cricket enthusiast of Chennai Super Kings. It said that Gurunath is infact the team owner.

The report which was submitted to the Supreme Court further added that allegations of betting and spot fixing against Rajasthan Royals’ Raj Kundra and Meiyappan need to be further investigated.

The committee also submitted another list of names of some more prominent people who surfaced during the probe in a sealed envelope to the court. The report suggested that BCCI chief Srinivasan holding the ownership of IPL franchisee is a conflict of interest and a serious issue that needs to be considered by court.
