The three-man probe committee appointed by India's Supreme Court to investigate corruption in IPL 2013 will meet with banned fast bowler Sreesanth, among others, between November 15 and 17 in Mumbai.

The committee will also interact with IPL chief executive Sundar Raman, former IPL chairman Chirayu Amin, television commentator Harsha Bhogle, Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra, and Ankit Chavan and Harmeet Singh, who were part of the Royals squad in 2013. It will also meet Vindoo Dara Singh, an actor who was arrested by Mumbai police for his alleged involvement in IPL betting.

On November 5 and 6, the committee had met Ravi Sawani, the head of the BCCI's anti-corruption unit, and Himanshu Roy, joint Commissioner of police, Crime, Mumbai, and his team.

The probe committee comprises Mukul Mudgal, former chief justice of the Punjab and Haryana high court, L Nageshwar Rao, additional solicitor-general of India, and Nilay Dutta, senior advocate and member of the Assam Cricket Association. Its terms of reference are specifically related to allegations of betting and spot-fixing on IPL matches, as well as the allegations of general "involvement" in betting and spot-fixing against Chennai Super Kings official Gurunath Meiyappan, who is the son-in-law of BCCI president N Srinivasan, CSK team owners India Cements, and Rajasthan Royals team owners Jaipur IPL Cricket Private Ltd, as well as some players.

SREESANTH is one player who I hope is acquitted. One player whose bowling and seam position was excellent. It's a real loss to India if his career cannot be salvaged. I would rate him high up the pace bowling ladder in India. He could have been the spearhead India required after Zaks instead of Ishant.
