Rupa Gurunath, N Srinivasan's daughter, becomes first female president of state unit after winning TNCA elections
Rupa is the wife of Gurunath Meiyappan, who is serving a life ban for his involvement in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal and was elected unopposed
Rupa Gurunath, daughter of former BCCI chief N Srinivasan, is all set to be elected the first woman president of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) at its 87th AGM at Chennai on Thursday.
Tamil Nadu Cricket Association set to anoint former BCCI chief N Srinivasan's daughter Rupa Gurunath as president
It must be mentioned that Rupa's husband Gurunath Meiyappan has been banned for life by the BCCI for his role in betting during the 2013 spot-fixing scandal
IPL 2019: Mahendra Singh Dhoni opens up about 2013 spot-fixing scandal, says it was most depressing period of his life
Mahendra Singh Dhoni gives in very little with his body language and that's the reason he feels that people never asked him how he coped with all the baseless allegations levelled at him when 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal reared its ugly head.
Raj Kundra said: "Through this (poker) league we want to change the perception (that) it's just gaming and gambling. We are confident we will succeed in attracting more and more youngsters to the sport."
The Supreme Court also pointed out that the BCCI does not have an inalienable right to make money.
Star India and Chettinad Cement are among the companies which have bought the bid document for buying the two new teams in the Indian Premier League.
IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings on Thursday moved the Madras High Court challenging the order of Justice Lodha Committee suspending it from Indian Premier League over the 2013 betting scam involving its top official Gurunath Meiyappan.
An embattled BCCI on Sunday decided to constitute a working group to study the order and give recommendations within six weeks
IPL GC, headed by politician Rajeev Shukla, is expected to delve deep into the finer points of the strong judgment issued a few days ago by the Lodha committee
BCCI's indifference compelled the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee to take action
Rahul Dravid said on Friday that the decision of the Justice Lodha commitee to ban Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from the IPL for two years will affect the young players
The IPL has burnt quite a few fingers in the business world since its inception in 2008
Chennai means a lot of things to a lot of people. But to Dhoni, it is his home away from home. A place he calls his own. And for that reason alone, the CSK fans will hope he stays.
Justice RM Lodha, who headed the committee that proposed a two-year suspension of the two teams -- Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals -- has said that the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) is free to terminate the IPL franchises
What Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra, the two outlawed cricket enthusiasts, so to speak, have done is to emulate the corporate czars on the betting front.
It should embarrass the BCCI and the ICC that the three judges had to look beyond their codes to mete out strict penalties to Meiyappan, Kundra, India Cements, and Jaipur IPL Cricket.
The biggest surprise of Lodha verdict was the suspension of CSK and RR. The shaken fan-base is still trying to come to terms with the verdict
The Lodha committee verdict is the latest step in the case that began with Verma filing a case in the Bombay High Court claiming that the BCCI’s investigation that completely cleared Meiyappan and Kundra in the IPL betting case was a sham.
The verdict is exemplary. The activities of Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra corrupted the soul of the game and nothing short of an extraordinary punishment would have driven home the point.
