BCCI welcomes Lodha panel’s landmark verdict on IPL fixing

New Delhi, July 14 (ANI): Board of Control for Cricket’s (BCCI) president Jagmohan Dalmiya has welcomed the Justice R.M. Lodha-led committee’s verdict on the IPL spot-fixing case, saying that the sport’s governing body is ‘committed to honour and respect judicial decisions’.

“BCCI is committed to honour and respect judicial decisions and it would give its observations after the entire report is read and a collective decision is taken,” said Dalmiya.

Dalmiya, however, asserted that BCCI is committed to ensuring transparency, accountability and cleansing the sport in order to restore the faith and confidence of millions of cricket loving people in the glorious game of cricket in general and IPL in particular.

In a sensational verdict, the three-member Supreme Court appointed committee headed by Justice R.M. Lodha has found Chennai Super Kings (CSK) official Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals (RR) co-owner Raj Kundra guilty, and imposed life suspensions on the duo.

The committee also suspended Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from participating in the IPL for a period of two years.

Meanwhile, secretary Anurag Thakur said, “We respect the verdict and would undertake a collective decision in a transparent manner, in the right direction and in the larger interest of the game after the verdict is received and analysed.”

The BCCI also stated that it will not make further comments on this issue. (ANI)
