New Delhi: Mar 25, 2014

 

Former Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Lalit Modi hailed the Supreme Court’s observation that N Srinivasan should step down as Board of Control of India (BCCI) chief for a fair probe into the IPL fixing scandal, and said the Tamil Nadu strongman should now be shown the door from the Board once and for all.

“Kudos to the Honourable Supreme Court for taking the most decisive action to say global cricket. Finally they have shown the door to Srini,” Modi wrote on his twitter page.

“Hope my colleagues in BCCI will now once and forever get rid of this M—— from Chennai who had cemented himself in all governing bodies,” he wrote.

After going through the contents of a report filed in a sealed cover by apex court-appointed probe panel into the scandal, a bench headed by Justice A K Patnaik said there are “very very serious” allegations made in the report and unless the BCCI president steps down, no fair probe can be conducted.

The beleaguered Srinivasan now appeared isolated even within the Board as three of the five vice-presidents — Shivlal Yadav, Ravi Sawant and Chitrak Mitra — asked him to abide by Supreme Court’s observation.

Modi, a vocal critic of Srinivasan, said the main task before cricket administrators now is to cleanse the game in the wake of the IPL spot-fixing scandal.

He said all those connected with India Cements, Srinivasan’s company, should be disassociated with the game of cricket.

“Big task ahead to win back the hearts and faith of the fans. Second step to rid everyone connected to india cements from cricket,” Modi said.

“We had lost a few battles along the way. But winning the war against fixing is the only way forward.

“Waiting for Dusshera to happen early this year after the modern day Ravan is gone? (sic)” he concluded.
