An Indian Supreme Court panel has suspended two Premier League cricket teams after being found guilty in an illegal betting and match-fixing probe.
The Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals were banned for two years, according to media reports. The panel also suspended Royals co-owner Raj Kundra and Gurunath Meiyappan of Super Kings from all cricket-related activities for life.
The IPL is the richest of the world’s Twenty20 cricket leagues.
The panel was formed in January following an investigation by a separate committee into wrongdoing in the 2013 tournament.
Test bowler Shanthakumaran Sreesanth and his former Rajasthan Royals team-mate Ankeet Chavan were banned for life by the BCCI after being arrested in May 2013 on suspicion of taking money to concede a minimum number of runs.
