MUMBAI: The Bombay High Court (HC) has termed BCCI's probe panel -that investigated the IPL spot fixing scam- as illegal and unconstitutional. This decision by HC is seen as a major setback for N. Srinivasan who was set to return as BCCI President on the basis of the probe panel's findings.

BCCI's probe panel set up by the cricket control body to look into the allegations of spot fixing in the IPL season had virtually gave a clean chit to N. Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan. The Mumbai Police arrested Meiyappan in the spot fixing case after he was named by one of the co-accused Vindoo Dara Singh.

After BCCI set up an internal probe panel to investigate the IPL spot fixing case, the Bihar Cricket Association had filed a petition in the Bombay High court challenging the probe panel. The court upheld the petition by Bihar Cricket Association and said ""We find that the manner in which BCCI (Board for Control of Cricket in India) has constituted a panel under its own rules is illegal and unconstitutional.""
