A Supreme Court-appointed panel suspended former champions Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from the Indian Premier League for two years as it presented its verdict on the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal on Tuesday.
ICC chief N Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra were suspended from any type of cricket matches for life after they were found guilty of betting in the T20 tournament.
Lodha was appointed head of the sentencing panel in January after the Supreme Court had found Royals' co-owner Raj Kundra and CSK's Meiyappan guilty of betting on the outcome of matches in 2013.
The committee also proposed to impose sanctions on India Cement's franchise by suspending it from the league for two years. "No action was taken by India Cements against Mr Meiyappan," he said.
