IPL spot-fixing: Lalit Modi lambasts BCCI on Twitter
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: After the BCCI two-probe panel gave clean chit to Chennai Super Kings (CSK), sacked IPL chief Lalit Modi expressed his anger on the micro blogging site Twitter.
After the panel gave clean chits to Raj Kundra and Gurunath Meiyappan, Modi tweeted, “Seen the Bcci decisions. All I can say is i am glad i am not part of this lame duck absolutely shameless organization anymore."
Meanwhile, BCCI vice-president Niranjan Shah on Sunday said N Srinivasan could return as BCCI chief and chair the IPL Governing Council meeting on August 2 as the probe panel has found no evidence against his team Chennai Super Kings in the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.
"He himself has stepped down and now as probe is already finished, given to the working committee already, Srinivasan can come any time he wants to. He can chair the meeting," Shah said when asked if Srinivasan can chair the GC meeting in the capital.
Modi’s ire against Srinivasan is well known. He had earlier, too reacted on Twitter when Srinivasan said that people are jealous of Chennai Super Kings because they have MS Dhoni.
Modi had tweeted, “is this a joke or what. Jealous ??”
The panel was mandated to enquire into the roles of Srinivasan`s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, who was the Team Prinicipal of Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan Royals and its co-owner Raj Kundra.
Srinivasan, who owns the CSK franchise, remained defiant through the turmoil and refused to resign but had to step aside as BCCI President after a stormy emergent Board meeting on June 2 where Dalmiya took charge of an interim arrangement to run the Board`s affairs pending the inquiry.
