Mudgal: Girl stayed whole night “alone” in Indian player’s hotel room in Sri Lanka

A senior Indian player, known as individual no.3 in the Mudgal Panel report, is “safe” as far as his involvement in having a lady in his hotel room in Sri Lanka during the 2010 Asia Cup is concerned.According to our highly placed sources, the lady, believed to be an executive of the management company, which looks after other Indian players too, didn’t sleep with the player but she stayed in the room alone until 4am.

“The player in question (Individual no. 3) went and slept in another player’s room,” the source close to the panel said.

It could not be confirmed whether the Mudgal Panel members met the girl after seeking a date to discuss the issue with her. However, the girl’s parents are believed to have met Panel members to express their daughter’s innocence.
“The girl wanted to leave from Dambulla to Colombo on the night of the incident but was persuaded by the player to stay back and an arrangement was made for her overnight stay ‘alone in the room’.” the source added.
The girl in question is likely to marry another member of the present India squad and if everything goes according to the plan, their wedding will take place after next year’s Cricket World Cup.
The incident of the girl staying in the player’s room was known to at least four other BCCI officials, the probe panel has said in its report submitted to the Supreme Court. And this list of four includes one member who was actively involved in the IPL and one minister in the present Government.
