 In July 2015, the RM Lodha Committee suspended India Cements, the owner of Chennai Super Kings, for two years due to their involvement in spot-fixing and betting. These illegal activities were discovered in 2013 on the day of the finals, between Mumbai Indians & Chennai Super Kings. As a result, team principal Gurunath Meiyappan got arrested for the spot-fixing. CSK was consequently suspended for two years in 2015 but returned to the IPL in 2018.
