Calcutta: The Justice Mukul Mudgal-led IPL probe committee has denied that they will be travelling to England to interact with members of the Indian team, contrary to a PTI report.
The report had also wrongly stated that the panel members had spoken to the effectively-suspended BCCI president and ICC chairman, N. Srinivasan and his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan.
“The Committee would like to clarify that neither the Committee nor its members interacted with Mr Srinivasan or Mr Meiyappan on 15-16 August 2014 in Chennai or at any other time during the second leg of its investigation ordered by the Hon’ble Supreme Court on 16.5.2014,” a BCCI statement said.
“The Committee on 15-16 August 2014 met at Chennai and interacted with its investigative team and other investigative authorities.
“The Committee or any of its members also have no intention of travelling outside the country for any interaction with the players, contrary to some speculations in the media.
“The Committee is fully aware of the fact that any interaction with the players during a series may disturb their poise and concentration,” the statement said.
