The Supreme Court appointee committee had been keen to seek Ganguly’s views as he has participated in a few IPL seasons. However, his availability was a problem while playing.
The three-member committee also met Jagmohan Dalmiya. The CAB (Cricket Association of Bengal) president has also served as BCCI and ICC president in the past.
The committee, headed by retired justice Mukul Mudgal, (senior lawyer and and Additional Solicitor General N Nagehswar Rao and Assam Cricket Association member Nilay Dutta are the other members of the committee) also met Kishore Bhimani (commentator), Boria Mazumdar (cricket historian) and Aditya Verma, the Bihar Cricket Association representative who has strong reservations over Gurunath Mayeppan’s role in the IPL.
After this week’s meeting in Kolkata, the probe committee’s last destination is believed to be Bangalore where Anil Kumble and Rahul Dravid are set to be interviewed.
One high ranking police officer in Bangalore is also likely to be interviewed before the committee finally submits its report to the Supreme Court.
