New Delhi: A key member of India’s world cup winning team was named in the submission of Justice Mukul Mudgal committee’s final report that was submitted to the Supreme Court on Monday. The player’s link with illegal bookmakers and match fixers has also been mentioned in the report.

 



 

As published in The Indian Express, this fact has been revealed. The report also said that the player is not a Team India regular anymore but was a big draw for his team in IPL last year and the season that ended with the arrest of three Rajasthan Royals players and a Chennai Super Kings official, Gurunath Meiyappan, on match-fixing and betting charges. The report also added that he was not a part of the Chennai or Jaipur franchises which were the two teams under the scanner.
