New Delhi: A plea was on Friday moved in Supreme Court for direction to the BCCI that players’ auction for IPL 2014 should be subject to order passed by it on the report of a committee probing the spot-fixing scam of 2013 IPL allegedly involving Gurunath Meiyappan of the Chennai Super Kings.
The application was mentioned before a bench headed by Justice A.K. Patnaik that agreed to hear it on February 10.
The auction of players is scheduled to be held in Bangalore on February 12 and 13 and IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings will be participating in it.

The application filed by Aditya Verma, secretary of the Cricket Association of Bihar, sought an interim order for the BCCI on the IPL auction, saying there was a likelihood that the three-member probe committee headed by former Punjab & Haryana Chief Justice Mukul Mudgal would come out with its report in the second week of this month.
Verma said the probe committee will submit a report on the role of Meiyappan, son-in-law of BCCI president N. Srinivasan, whose company India Cements owns IPL team Chennai Super Kings.
The application said that if the report is adverse to Chennai Super Kings, then the team’s participation in this year’s IPL would become untenable. “Chennai Super Kings may also be liable to be cancelled,” said Verma. He said among the various persons, he was also examined by the Mudgal Committee.
Under these circumstances, Verma said that an interim order be passed that auction of players would be subject to order of the Apex Court on the report of Justice Mudgal Committee vis-à-vis Chennai Super King so that justice may be done.
