IPL spot-fixing case: SC dismisses CAB's plea demanding disclosure of players' names

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed Cricket Association of Bihar's (CAB) plea demanding disclosure of player names in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.

The plea was filed by Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) on Monday and the apex body agreed to admit it in court on Thursday.

The CAB application came up for hearing at 2.00 p.m.

According to Aditya Verma, secretary of CAB, handing over the sealed cover with names of 13 players in it will to Lodha committee will help the latter to understand extent of corruption in Indian cricket.

CAB believes understanding the malaise that has crept into cricket will help the Lodha committee in proposing administrative reforms required to restructure BCCI and also prevent further financial irregularities and scams.
