Supreme Court delays IPL corruption investigation

NEW DELHI (AP) — India’s Supreme Court has delayed green-lighting an independent investigation into corruption in the Indian Premier League after the Board of Control for Cricket in India asked a new panel be appointed.

The court last week asked Justice Mukul Mudgal, who headed a three-man commission that found Chennai Super Kings team principal Gurunath Meiyappan guilty of being in contact with illegal bookmakers, to prepare for a renewed investigation.

The court was expected to announce details of the panel and investigation on Tuesday, but said it will pass on the order later after objections from the BCCI.

Meiyappan is the son-in-law of suspended BCCI chief Narainswami Srinivasan, who will also be investigated.
