Cricket should remain a gentleman’s game: SC to BCCI
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday told BCCI that cricket must be played in its true spirit and should remain a gentleman’s game. Supreme Court’s hearing of the IPL spot-fixing inquiry resumed following the report filed by the Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee
The apex court stated “If you allow these things to happen, then you are killing the game of cricket” when referring to the IPL spot-fixing scandal.
The court further told BCCI “We take the findings of Justice Mudgal Committee’s report as gospel truth.”
It also further stated that the benefit of doubt should go in favour of game rather than any individual.
The court told ICC chairman Srinivasan “You will have to address question of conflict of interest as head of BCCI and also as owner of IPL team, whose official is found to be involved in betting.”
