Mumbai: May 22, 2013

Former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi on Wednesday alleged that BCCI chief N Srinivasan, BJP leader Arun Jaitley and the present head of the T20 cricket league, Rajeev Shukla, have ruined the game.

Modi’s allegations appeared on his official Twitter page, in the wake of the IPL 2013 spot-fixing controversy which is getting murkier by the day.

The former IPL commissioner shared identity cards of Chennai Super Kings CEO Gurunath Meiyappan, who happens to be the son-in-law of Srinivasan, as well as few others.

Modi wrote on Twitter: “This spot fixing mess – is getting even worse. Srinivasan and family should immediately resign. They should be banned with immediate effect.”

The Mumbai Police on Wednesday found Vindoo Dara Singh’s phone call logs linking him to a relative of the owner of a powerful franchise in the Indian Premier League.

It was later revealed that India Cements-owned Chennai Super Kings is the franchise in question.

Vindoo was arrested by the Mumbai Police crime branch after they had reasons to believe he had links with bookie Ramesh Vyas, who too was arrested for his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing scandal.

Modi wrote. “If Guru is involved then Srini is indeed doing this for vested interest & his rubber stamps @ShuklaRajiv & Arun Jaitley should not be spared.” (sic)

Modi, who is on a self-imposed exile in London added: “Bcci president / Csk owner / control Ipl by putting dummy @ShuklaRajiv With legal supremo Arun Jaitley – trio who have ruined cricket.” (sic)
