New Delhi, May 13 (ANI): After watching the footage of Harbhajan-Sreesanth row, and listing to both the players stand, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)-appointed commissioner Sudhir Nanavati submitted his report to the BCCI today.
Nanavati has prepared a 14-page report with ten pages of annexures, which was handed over to the BCCI disciplinary committee.
After BCCI President Sharad Pawar studies the report, the committee will then decide on the quantum of punishment to be given to the person found guilty.
Nanavati told reporters, “I was under tension while making the report not because of the subject, but because the issue that I was investigating was very sensitive. So many eyes were on me. I can’t afford to make any mistakes.”
“I was very cautious while drafting the report. I have written each and every word carefully and I can justify every sentence in the report,” said the Ahmedabad-based lawyer.
Nanavati had said he was satisfied with the answers given by both the players and did not feel the need to question anybody else.
Some experts are of the view that the ace spinners chance to get life ban is weak and that he might face five-ten One Day International (ODI) match ban.
The decision on the row is expected to be out in a week.
