A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking a stay on Indian Premier League (IPL) and other similar premier league cricket matches.

The petition also demands an SIT probe into the cricket betting industry.

A bench headed by the Chief Justice Dipak Misra and comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud heard the matter on Friday and directed the Central Agency to make arrangements to provide assistance to the Court on the issue raised by the petitioners.

In their petition, Atul Kumar and journalist Shantanu Guha Ray have contended that cricket matches are fixed and that the various agencies in India have been unable to keep a check on the growing illegal betting industry.

The petition alleges that the under-performance of the Indian cricket team in ICC Champions Trophy of 2017 is a perfect example of matches being fixed.
