The SC had on January 22 held that the allegation of betting against Meiyappan and Kundra stands proved and formed the committee of its retired judges to determine the punishment for Meiyappan, who was the Chennai Super Kings team Principal and Kundra, co-owner of Rajasthan Royals.

Gurunath: In its report submitted on February 9, 2014, the Mudgal committee had concluded that Meiyappan was the face of the CSK team along with being a de facto owner. It also found that he was in constant touch with bookies and punters, and traced several calls between him and Vindoo Dara Singh where Meiyappan was proved to be placing bets on and against his team even while IPL matches were on.

Kundra: Raj Kundra was referred to as Individual No.11 by the Committee and was said to be in touch with bookies and that he was friends with a known punter, who had provided a statement that he had placed bets on behalf of the RR co-owner. Sundar Raman: In its January judgement, the Supreme Court said that there were allegations against the IPL COO about having been in constant touch with Vindoo Dara Singh with records of 350 phone conversations between them during the 2013 IPL. The other allegation against Sundar Raman was failing to take any action against IPL franchise owners and team officials despite receiving information about their betting activities. The SC quoted from both the Probe Committee’s report as well as the findings of BB Mishra, a key member of the Mudgal committee.
