ROUND TWO: The PTI reported BCCI VP Niranjan Shah on Thursday became the first senior official to openly call for a fresh probe into the IPL spot-fixing scandal, saying such a step was needed as the Board's "image has really gone down." Shah said that "it was imperative to do something to improve the image of the Board, taking into account the recent Bombay High court order." Shah: "We must do something to improve Board's image because cricket is very important" (PTI, 8/1). In Mumbai, Neeraj Chauhan wrote Delhi Police have alleged that the Int'l Cricket Council knew about bookies meeting int'l cricketers and inducing them for spot-fixing, "but did not do much." Delhi Police's chargesheet in the IPL spot-fixing scandal suggests that several bookies not only tried to "corrupt" some players during World Cup 2011, "but were also seen with several international players in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka a few times by ICC's Anti-Corruption Unit" (TIMES OF INDIA, 8/1).
