Gurunath’s comment can be perceived as an apparent reference to Chennai Super Kings’ return to IPL next year after a two-year suspension.
Chennai: After spending more than three years in forced hibernation, Gurunath Meiyappan has finally resurfaced on social media. The central figure in the IPL betting scandal in 2013, Gurunath, son-in-law of Chennai Super Kings owner N. Srinivasan, has been keeping a low profile. It was the betting allegation against Gurunath that led to the downfall of Srinivasan and also the formation of the Lodha Committee and its reforms.
In a reply to former CSK coach Stephen Fleming’s random tweet, Gurunath, who returned to social media since his last activity in December 2013, said: “Past is history Flem. We have a bigger battle next year.”
Gurunath’s comment can be perceived as an apparent reference to Chennai Super Kings’ return to IPL next year after a two-year suspension. While Super Kings were suspended for two years, the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha panel suspended Gurunath for life.
Gurunath also interacted with former CSK player Scott Styris on Twitter.
