Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been drafted into the Mudgal committee, which is in charge of investigating allegations of match-fixing and corruption in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
“We had requested Sourav Ganguly to join the IPL probe panel and he has agreed to join us in the investigations. I had telephoned Sourav and he confirmed about coming on board,” Mudgal told PTI. “Since our committee member L Nageswara Rao was not present today, we couldn’t fix the date of our next meeting. We will let you know when the committee meets next.”
The Mudgal committee was created in October last year after Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila were all indicted in a match-fixing scandal during the 2013 IPL season.
In February this year, the committee produced a report of their findings, along with a sealed envelope which contained 13 names that the they believed should be further investigated.
