International Cricket Council Chairman (ICC) Narayanaswami Srinivasan has been cleared in a report to India’s Supreme Court by a committee probing alleged corruption in the Indian Premier League.
India’s top court relieved Srinivasan of his duties as president of the BCCI to ensure a fair investigation into the allegations, in which his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan was indicted for illegal betting in the 2013 IPL season.
“This individual was not involved in match-fixing activities. This individual was not involved in scuttling investigations into match-fixing,” a section of the panel’s verdict is reported to have read.
The panel was set up following a string of high-profile incidents involving the Indian Premier League spot-fixing claims.
Shanthakumaran Sreesanth was handed a life ban by the BCCI for match-fixing last year when playing for the Rajasthan Royals.
Ankeet Chavan was also suspended indefinitely, while Ameet Singh Siddharth Trivedi were banned for five years and 12 months respectively.
