SC hearing on Monday

New Delhi: A plea was moved in Supreme Court on Friday for direction to the BCCI that players’ auction for IPL VII should be subject to order passed by it on the report of a committee, probing the spot-fixing scam which rocked the tournament last year.

The application in this regard was mentioned before a bench headed by Justice A.K. Patnaik, which agreed to hear it on Monday. The auction of players for IPL 2014 is scheduled to be held in Bangalore on Wednesday and Thursday.

The application filed by Aditya Verma, secretary of Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), sought an interim order for the BCCI on the IPL auction.

He said that in all likelihood, the three-member committee headed by former Punjab and Haryana Chief Justice Mukul Mudgal would come out with its report in the second week of this month.
