Among the usual attendees of the BCCI Working Committee meeting on Sunday was the unusual presence of Rajasthan Royals owners and managing committee members.

In the meeting, it was decided that Rajasthan Royals would lodge an FIR against its three tainted players for cheating the public, and the players would be booked under section 420 of the IPC.

It means the franchisee has also been dragged into the controversy and would have to initiate legal proceedings, while the BCCI will wait for its enquiry committee findings.

According to BCCI president N Srinivasan, the board can’t press charges on its own. “We are advised that the BCCI by itself can’t press charges because they (the players) are contracted to the franchisee. So the franchisee is filing,” he said.

With this, the BCCI seems to have passed on its moral obligation to punish the guilty to the franchisee.
