IPL Scam Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan Royals Suspended

Supreme Court-appointed three-member committee suspended Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals for two years in connection with IPL betting scandal.

Two-time champions CSK and inaugural winners Rajasthan Royals (RR) were suspended for two years and their respective co-owners Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra were suspended for life from being involved in all activities related to cricket matches for bringing game to disrepute.

The punishment was handed by a Supreme Court-appointed three-member committee headed by former CJI R M Lodha.

The two, found guilty of betting by the Supreme Court, were also suspended for a maximum 5 years from taking part in any cricketing activities. Both suspensions will be in effect from July 14 and will run concurrently.

Meiyappan is the son-in-law of N. Srinivasan, vice chairman and managing director of India Cements.

The Lodha committee was formed by the Supreme Court in its judgment in the IPL betting case on January 22. This judgment confirmed the Supreme Court-appointed Justice Mukul Mudgal committee's findings and held Mr. Meiyappan and Mr. Kundra guilty of betting. It dismissed claims that Mr. Meiyappan was no team official and he was only a cricket enthusiast.

I stopped watching cricket when the first match fixing scandal broke out in the end of 90s. As a fan, it was difficult. But as a good citizen, it was necessary.
