A group of Indian fans, in a bid to help clean up the game, have requested BCCI vice-president Arun Jaitley to publish the unedited probe report that will be submitted on Monday at the BCCI working committee meeting in Delhi. In a letter, the fans have asked for the report - put together by the two-man team assigned to investigate allegations of betting and spot-fixing in IPL - to be posted on the BCCI website, saying it would be "disappointing if BCCI decides not to publish it".
The letter, penned by Vijay Navaratnam and signed by 43 others, went on to ask for a secure email address through which the public could contact and provide evidence to the two-member investigation committee, comprised of retired Tamil Nadu High Court judges R Balasubramanian and T Jayaram Chouta. The letter referred to "video clips/photos/copies of emails in the media that show Mr Meiyappan is a formal member of Chennai Super Kings".
In its third point, the letter suggested a governance review of the BCCI. "We dare say the current sorry saga occurred precisely due to BCCI's poor governance. Poor governance and corruption are interrelated," the letter read. There was also a call to appoint BCCI directors who are independent of state associations to ensure there is no conflict of interest, and "to bring meaningful debate and fair decision-making into the BCCI boardroom".
