During the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League, some key Indian players and Bollywood stars were accused of spot-fixing. The names of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Suresh Raina were raised in the scandal by the Mudgal Panel report on Tuesday.

During the interrogations by Trichi Railway SP Sampat Kumar, bookie Uttam Jain aka Kitti confessed that Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper MS Dhoni and team-member Suresh Raina were involved in IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal, said the Mudgal report. The Mudgal committee also revealed that a journalist, who was apparently connected with the recordings of tapes for a sports magazine, was able to identify the voice of the Indian player and he also revealed that the player was part of Indian team which lifted the World Cup trophy and is also a member of the team now.

“However, the journalist refused to unveil the names of the Indian players indulged in the spot-fixing. He didn’t even agree to do so, even after repeated requests to put the names of the players in an envelope which will be opened before the Supreme Court panel. He seemed to be terrified and reluctant. He pleaded us that it will be dangerous for his if he reveals the name of the players,” said the panel report. “Now, it seems that the tapes have the names of six prominent Indian capped players, who were involved in the IPL 6 spot-fixing scandal. Among those six, two have been named by a former Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president,” revealed the report.
