IPL spot-fixing: Major announcement soon, says Arun Jaitley
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Before the emergency meeting of BCCI’s working committee, vice president Arun Jaitley has said that the cricket board is soon set to make a major announcement.
"Wait for a day, you will hear something significant," said Jaitley when asked if the five Vice Presidents of the Board, including him, could put in their papers on Saturday.
On Friday, two top BCCI officials, secretary Sanjay Jagdale and treasurer Ajay Shirke, quit from their respective posts in a bid to put pressure on beleaguered Cricket Board president N Srinivasan in the wake of the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.
Following the resignations, Srinivasan called an emergency meeting of the Board`s all-powerful working committee on June 8 to discuss the current crisis arising out of betting and spot-fixing in IPL.
On Friday, it was revealed that the transcripts of conversations between Meiyappan and small time actor Vindoo Dara Singh have revealed Meiyappan telling Vindoo that ICC had warned the BCCI about his spot-fixing trade offs.
It was also reported that someone in the BCCI had tipped off Meiyappan regarding the ICC warning, which in itself is a crime under Indian law.
