    India Cricket News: Shastri in proposed IPL probe panel | ESPN Cricinfo

    Can someone tell me how a cricket player turned commentator is qualified to conduct an investigation into matchfixing?

    Why don't they conduct an independent probe or just let the police do their job?

    According to Sanjay Patel, Shastri has been associated with the IPL right from its inception and that was one consideration. "The two good reasons were, Shastri has been around for a long time as a cricketer and he is also part of the various IPL committees including the governing council," Patel told ESPNcricinfo.

    Patel also explained at the meeting that the Bombay High Court, in an order in 2013, had said the probe committee needed to include one member from the Code of Behaviour committee under the IPL Operational Rules. According to the IPL website, the Code of Behaviour Committee comprises Sanjay Patel, Ranjib Biswal, Amitabh Chaudhary, Ravi Shastri and Arindam Ganguly. While Shastri is not an office bearer of the BCCI, he is on its payroll as a commentator and is a member of the governing council. His name is on two of four other IPL committees on the tournament website
    I don't think it's outrageous to suggest that someone who knows his cricket and how the IPL is run be part of the committee, but I do think it shouldn't be this ****.

    What are the chances that Dhoni is implicated in all of this?
