New Delhi: Mohammed Azharuddin has been found guilty of match-fixing while the other players, except Nayan Mongia, were found to have nexus with bookies by the Madhavan Committee report. "All players except Mongia had nexus with bookies. Involvement of Azhar is more than that of others, we will take disciplinary action based on the finding of the report," Dr A C Muthiah told reporters emerging out of a meeting with sports minister Uma Bharati. Madhavan's report was based on the testimony given to him by the five players named in the CBI report. The five players named in the CBI report were Azharuddin, Ajay Jadeja, Ajay Sharma, Manoj Prabhakar and Nayan Mongia. Dr Muthiah said the Madhavan Committee has found that the former physiotherapist of the team Ali Irani was the conduit between the players and the bookies and added the bookies used to pay the players through him. However, the Feroze Shah Kotla groundsman Ram Adhar has been exonerated of any wrong doing by the committee though the CBI had mentioned in its report about he being bribed by Ajay Sharma for preparing a pitch suited to the players.
