BCCI may probe Aditya Verma's finances, divided over Sunder Raman: sources

In the latest turn of events in the Indian Premier League betting and spot-fixing scandal, the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) sources on Tuesday told CNN-IBN that the board is likely to conduct internal inquiry into the finances of petitioner Aditya Verma, while it remains a divided house over the future of IPL COO Sundar Raman.

Sources revealed that BCCI is suspicious about some of it's past or present office-bearers are financing Verma, and the board may even send show-cause notices to some of its officials.

Meanwhile, the board members reportedly remain divided on future of Raman, after it was revealed on Monday that he has been indicted in the Justice Mudgal committee's IPL probe report and met bookies as many as eight times.

A section of the board is defending the Raman while another section feels he should be suspended pending inquiry.

Sources told CNN-IBN on Monday that Sharad Pawar wants Raman sacked and even called up interim BCCI president Shivlal Yadav. Pawar wants persons named in Mudgal report sacked from BCCI. Yadav reportedly turned down Pawar's call to sack Raman until he sees the report.

"Good Luck to Mr. Srinivasan, hope things move forward from here," Yadav told CNN-IBN. "Whether Mr. Srinivasan was in the know of the things [about fixing in IPL], let the court say that and then BCCI will react."

On Monday the Mudgal report also confirmed that ICC Chairman N Srinivasan and his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan were not involved in match-fixing; however, it said that Srinivasan was aware of corruption in the IPL and Meiyappan did place bets on some matches.

However, the report indicted Kundra saying that he was in touch with bookies for betting. "Raj Kundra was in touch with bookies and has violated IPL Anti-Corruption Code. There is material to indicate he was placing bets," said the Mudgal report. "The committee has also found that investigation against Raj Kundra was stopped by Rajasthan Police," it added.

The matter will next come up for hearing in the Supreme Court on November 24.
