MUM­BAI/NEW DELHI: The spot-fix­ing scan­dal may have made head­lines for a fort­night and landed three crick­eters in jail but it now looks as if there is a real risk that the in­ves­ti­ga­tions will peter out with­out get­ting to the root of the prob­lem or any big fish who may be in­volved.

Po­lice sources in Mum­bai said in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the Twenty20 league may only scratch the sur­face. Lit­tle progress has been made in trac­ing the money trail with no proof yet of any fi­nan­cial trans­ac­tions be­tween ar­rested CSK boss Gu­runath Meiyap­pan, the son-in-law of BCCI pres­i­dent N Srini­vasan, and Bol­ly­wood ac­tor, Vin­doo Dara Singh, two of the key fig­ures in the po­lice net.

The Delhi po­lice, who got the ball rolling by ar­rest­ing Ra­jasthan Royals’ S Sreesanth, An­keet Cha­van and Ajit Chandila, are mak­ing con­fi­dent noises about fil­ing the chargesheet within 90 days.
