Though the 138-page judgement by a bench of Justices TS Thakur and FM I Kalifulla left certain issues for its newly appointed committee of judges headed by former CJI RM Lodha to probe, it did not mention whether those players whose names have cropped up in the Mudgal report needed to be further investigated.

The Mudgal Committee in its interim report of February 10, 2014 and final report of November 3, 2014 had spoken of misdemeanour by certain persons, including players.
The committee had in its initial report named 12 cricketers in the list submitted in a sealed cover saying that further probe was required against them.
Later in the final report, it had categorically stated and indicted BCCI President-in-exile Srinivasan for not taking action against a cricketer, who it did not name, for violating Players Code of Conduct despite being aware of it.
