The Board of Control for Cricket India has granted extension for its one-man panel conducting a preliminary inquiry into the five domestic players suspended for alleged misconduct following a TV sting about three weeks ago.
Ravi Sawani, the BCCI anti-corruption unit head, began the probe on May 15.
"He (Sawani) asked for an extension and I have given it to him. He will submit the report in a day or two," N Srinivasan, BCCI president, told HT on Tuesday.
Once Sawani's report on the players — T Sudhindra, Mohnish Mishra, Shalabh Srivastava, Abhinav Bali and Amit Yadav — is submitted to the BCCI chief, it will be forwarded to the board's disciplinary committee comprising Srinivasan, Arun Jaitley and Niranjan Shah.
The five cricketers were suspended a day after India TV showed a sting.
