'IPL auction will be held as scheduled'

New Delhi, Feb 10: The BCCI today said that the IPL auction will go ahead as scheduled despite the Mudgal Committee report finding the involvement of Chennai Super Kings Team Principal Gurunath Meiyappan in betting during the IPL matches.

The Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee today submitted its report on the IPL spot-fixing allegations, saying that the allegations of betting and passing of information against Gurunath Meiyappan stands proved.

"The good that Supreme Court has done is that the IPL auction was not stopped. It will happen as planned for all the teams in Bangalore (on February 12 and 13)," said BCCI Vice-President Rajeev Shukla, who is also a Union Minister and a former IPL chairman.

Shukla said it is important to wait for the Supreme Court's directive on the issue before taking any decision.

"Supreme Court is an apex court and it will give some views and we should wait for Supreme Court's views," he said.

"We should leave it to Supreme Court what decisions they take. IPL auction will continue, we need to wait for Supreme Court directive."
