In a major blow to the BCCI, the Bombay High Court on Tuesday termed the two-member probe panel formed by the cricket board to investigate IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal as unconstitutional and illegal.

The court has asked BCCI to form a new probe panel.

As per reports, BCCI is likely to appeal in Supreme Court against the order.

The court has said that there is a disparity in the evidence collected by the panel.

The panel`s report, which was submitted to the Working Committee of the BCCI in Kolkata Sunday, gave a clean chit to Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra, paving a way for Srinivasan to return as the BCCI president.

Questions were already being raised over the clean chit the panel gave to Meiyappan and Kundra in IPL spot-fixing scandal.
