During the 2013 IPL season, there were discussions about scouting and betting activities. So, Gurunath Meiyappan was arrested on the day of the final match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians in 2013. He was arrested for stage manipulation. In fact, Raj Kundra, the owner of the Rajasthan Royals, is also facing similar charges.

In July 2015, the Supreme Court of India appointed a three-member committee headed by former Indian Chief Justice RM Lodha. Match-fixing and betting led Lodha judging committee to ban Super Kings of Chennai and Rajasthan Royals from Indian Premier League for 2 years – 2016 and 2017. Raj Kundra of Rajasthan Royals and Meiyappan of Gurunath CSK, the main managers of the two franchises, have been banned for life from all cricket matches organized by the BCCI.
