New Delhi: Preferring to play safe, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar on Friday said that the whole IPL spot-fixing saga will become clear once the Supreme Court verdict is out in the open.
"I think the AGM has been postponed. So if the AGM is postponed then I believe they are allowing the SC to act in a couple of weeks' of time. From then on, things will get a little more clear," Gavaskar said.
The SC today named N Srinivasan, his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, Rajasthan Royals owner Raj Kundra, cricket administrator Sundararaman, who were probed by the Justice Mudgal committee which had found "some misdemeanour by certain persons" and indicted them in the IPL-6 scam. Gavaskar though said it's better to wait and watch than jump the gun.
"Apart from the fact that he (Srinivasan) has been suspended (from acting as BCCI president), there is no ruling that bars him from contesting an election. Over a period of time we will get to hear from SC," he told a leading Indian news channel.
Reading out from the report, a bench of the Supreme Court headed by Justice T S Thakur disclosed these names but said the identity of the players should not be made public at this stage. "They should be left out for now".
