Verma steps up pressure for Sundar Raman's removal as IPL COO

Tags: IPL, News
Unrecognised Cricket Association of Bihar secretary Aditya Verma today stepped up pressure on BCCI's interim president for Indian Premier League Sunil Gavaskar to remove Sundar Raman from the post of IPL COO.

"I had earlier invited your kind attention to the fact that Mr. Sundar Raman's continuation as COO of IPL is deeply prejudicial to the interest of IPL and game of cricket.

"However, no action has been taken on my said letter nor any response to the same has been given. By way of this reminder, I would urge you that in the interest of IPL and the game of cricket please remove Sundar Raman as COO of IPL," Verma wrote in a letter to Gavaskar.

Verma had already voiced his opposition to continuation of Raman as IPL CEO.

It was Verma, who had filed a PIL in June last year, contending to the Bombay High Court that that BCCI's two-member internal probe panel investigating into the IPL fixing issue was unconstitutional.

"I had also mentioned about the transcript given by Mumbai Police to the Mudgal Committee indicating the role of Sundar Raman in passing insider information which clearly aided and abetted betting in the last season of IPL," he said.

"The said conversation formed part of Annexure-15 to the report filed by Mudgal Committee regarding intercept of 15th May, 2013 between Jaipur based bookie Pawan and Vindoo Dara Singh showing that Sundar Raman gave tip to Gurunath Meiyappan which were being shared by Vindoo Dara Singh to bookie Pawan," Verma added.

The Supreme Court had last month installed batting legend and former captain Sunil Gavaskar as the interim head of the country's Cricket Board in place of incumbent N Srinivasan.
