Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Indian Premier League (IPL) Sundar Raman has resigned from his position.
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has formally accepted his resignation in the wake of the change of regime under new President Shashank Manohar and in an effort to clean up the Indian cricketing system.
It is being said that, Raman’s name had cropped up in the 2013 IPL spot- fixing scandal involving former BCCI President N Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals’ then co-owner Raj Kundra.
Even Supreme Court appointed Mudgal Committee on the IPL spot- fixing scandal in its report has mentioned that Raman was decreed to have been in touch with a contact of a bookmaker eight times during IPL season. The committee in its report also had observed that Raman’s role should be further investigated.
Patiala House Courts in New Delhi has acquitted all 36 accused persons in the Indian Premier League (IPL) season 6 spot fixing case including former cricketer S Sreesanth.
Among the other players acquitted include two prominent IPL players Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan who were on bail like Sreesanth in this case. They were acquitted by the court for lack of evidence against them.
The IPL spot-fixing scandal came into the light in 2013 after the Delhi Police arrested S Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila. All of them were representing IPL team Rajasthan Royals. They were alleged for indulging in betting and spot-fixing during then 6th edition of IPL.
Later, Supreme Court had constituted Committee headed by former Chief Justice of India R M Lodha to look into this matter. In January 2015, the Committee in its terms of reference being to announce the quantum of punishment against Meiyappan, Kundra and the two franchisees CSK and Rajasthan Royals.
