New Delhi: Aditya Verma now wants the Supreme Court to reveal the names of the 13 players who have been named in a sealed envelope by the Mudgal probe committee, which investigated the allegations of spot-fixing and betting in the sixth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), according to a report.

Verma, the petitioner in the IPL spot fixing scandal, hailed the former Justice R.M Lodha committee's verdict, which suspended the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR), and banned Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra from cricket.

But the secretary of unrecognised the Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), according to a report in Times of India, is approaching the Supreme Court again to make public the names of 13 players. It is believed that these players, including six India stars, have played their role in the IPL betting and spot-fixing scam in 2013.

"I'm soon going to move to the SC to file a petition to make the names of these players public. The fans have a right to know who exactly are these players who cheated the game," Verma told the newspaper.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had earlier pleaded with the apex court to not make this list public in the hope to prevent damage to the reputation of these cricketers.
