The IPL governing council has appointed a three-member commission comprising two former high court judges and BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale to look into the complaints against India Cements, the owners of the Chennai Super Kings, Gurunath Meiyappan, the Super Kings official arrested on charges of betting, and Jaipur IPL Pvt Ltd, the owners of Rajasthan Royals.

The two judges are Justice T Jayaram Chouta, a former judge of the Karnataka and Tamil Nadu High Courts, and Justice R Balasubramanian, former judge of the Tamil Nadu High Court.

"The Commission will be initiating the adjudication proceedings at the earliest," the BCCI said in a release.

The composition of the commission is different to what BCCI president N Srinivasan had announced in Kolkata, where he said it would be formed by two BCCI officials and one independent member. This commission, Srinivasan said, would be responsible for investigating and deciding whether his son-in-law Gurunath was an owner of the Super Kings franchise.

The commission will also conduct an inquiry into the owners of the Rajasthan Royals franchise, three of whose players - Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan - were arrested on allegations of spot-fixing.
