Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman met the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Ombudsman and Ethics officer D.K. Jain in New Delhi on Tuesday and the two are likely to be once again represented by their respective lawyers when the second round of hearing takes place on May 20. Complainant Sanjeev Gupta was also present separately and they have been asked to give written submission of their depositions.
They were summoned by the ombudsman after cases of alleged conflict were filed against them for their roles as IPL team mentors as well as members of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC).
In his reply, Tendulkar had torn into the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) and had said that it was on them to clear the mess that had been created.
