Mumbai: "I don't know on what basis my name is being bandied about," former India all-rounder Manoj Prabhakar said in Mumbai on Monday night, reacting to media reports that his name was among those figuring in the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) report on betting and match-fixing submitted to the Government. Prabhakar said, "If serving the nation is a crime, I plead guilty." "As far as I am concerned, now the ball is neither in the CBI's court nor in the government's court but it is in the people's court. It is for the people of the country to decide whether I am guilty or not," Prabhakar added. Meanwhile, Board of Control of Cricket in India secretary Jaywant Lele on Monday told "Star News" on phone from Mumbai that the Board's Code of Conduct Committee would study the report and recommend "suitable action depending on the quality of charges against the players".Lele said any wrong-doing by the players was in their individual capacity and the Board cannot be held responsible for it.
