NEW DELHI (AP) — Chennai Super Kings official Gurunath Meiyappan and Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf are among 22 people charged by Indian police over the spot-fixing scandal during this year's Indian Premier League.

A Mumbai court will hear the case on Nov. 21.

Meiyappan, son-in-law of Board of Control for Cricket in India president Narainswamy Srinivasan, spent two weeks in jail before getting bail while Rauf was never arrested.

Meiyappan is accused of being in touch with illegal bookmakers and Rauf of accepting expensive gifts from them. Both men deny any wrongdoing.

The scandal erupted after Rajasthan Royals players Shantakumaran Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were arrested on May 16 for allegedly giving away more than a specified number of runs in return for money. They have already been charged separately.
