Cricket: Internal probe clears Indian board chief in IPL spot-fixing: source
NEW DELHI (AFP) - A probe ordered by India's cricket chiefs into a betting scandal in the Indian Premier League (IPL) has found no wrongdoing, allowing the return of BCCI president N. Srinivasan, a source told AFP on Monday.
Srinivasan stepped aside temporarily as president of the Board of Control for Cricket (BBCI) in India on June 2 after his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan was arrested, and later released on bail, over alleged links to illegal bookmakers.
Meiyappan is a team owner of IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings, a team bought by Srinivasan's India Cements conglomerate when the league was launched in 2008.
The BCCI appointed two retired High Court judges, Jayaram Chouta and R. Balasubramanian, to conduct an internal probe into the involvement of its members or of IPL owners.
