BCCI President N Srinivasan has spoken out for the first time since the allegation of betting and spot-fixing in IPL6 unfolded in June this year. In an explosive interview with Times Now, Srinivasan spoke on the IPL scandal, his stepping aside from the post, about his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan's arrest in connection with the scandal, and the earlier two-member probe panel.
“You have to understand that I did not get involved in the investigation. When this issue was raked up, I had stepped aside. These two judges (Justice T. Jayarama Chouta and Justice R. Balasubramanian) were appointed by the BCCI after I had stepped aside, I had nothing to do with the committee. I was not the BCCI president then,” Srinivasan said.
“The probe panel was formed by the BCCI working committee when I was not present. I did not even see the report. When I said I stepped aside, I mean I stepped aside completely. I did not have access to the report.”
