The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the IPL spot-fixing case on Monday after the Justice Mukul Mudgal-led committee probing the case submitted its final report on November 3, but will it be an eye opener or an eyewash?
The sealed envelope in possession of the court could lay bare many hidden stories about the IPL6 spot-fixing saga, which shamed Indian cricket and shook the game's establishment in the country.
If sources are to be believed, big names like ICC Chairman N Srinivasan and India captain MS Dhoni, both under the scanner for their conflict of interest, maybe spared in person or at best be cautioned.
Who is the Team India player named in the report?
After Justice Mudgal submitted his final report on November 3, sources also toldCNN-IBN that the report contains the name of one India national player.
But when contacted following report submission, Justice Mudgal refused to comment. "The report has been submitted in a sealed cover. Court will decide what to do now. I cannot say more about the report; case will come [up for hearing] on November 10."
Trouble for Raj Kundra?
According to sources, the report also mentions the name of Raj Kundra, but the context of that will only be clear if and when his name is mentioned during the hearing. Kundra is the co-owner of Rajasthan Royals - the team whose players S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were jailed on charges of corruption and spot-fixing before being released on bail.
