I'm satisfied and relaxed: Nanavati

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) appointed Appeals Commissioner Sudhir Nanavati submitted his report on the Harbhajan Singh-S Sreesanth slapgate issue on Tuesday to the cricket board's Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty.

After submitting the report, Nanavati spoke to CNN-IBN's Roma Khanna.

Roma Khanna: How much would your report help the Disciplinary Committee which includes Sharad Pawar, Shashank Manohar and Chirayu Amin to come to a conclusion?

Sudhir Nanavati: I think that the report in the manner in which it is reading, will definitely help to the best extent possible to the members of the Disciplinary Committee. In my words it is going to be seen by them as if the incident happened before their eyes. It will be a mirror image. I have prepared the report in such a way that it will be easy for them to reach their own conclusion depending on my report and the evidences that I have narrated in it.

Roma Khanna: What are your thoughts and your feeling now after submitting the report to Ratnakar Shetty?

Sudhir Nanavati: The first feeling is that I am having a sense of satisfaction. My job is over and the process of handing over the report is also over. So definitely I am feeling satisfied and feeling relaxed.

Roma Khanna: What was your observation of the two men that you interviewed involved in this incident?

Sudhir Nanavati: Both appeared nicely before me and whatever I asked them they replied very calmly and coolly. I did not find that they wanted to hide anything from me.
