New Delhi: Former IPL czar Lalit Modi said Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals got away with lighter punishment post the Jutice Lodha Committee's verdict in the IPL spot-fixing and betting case.

The fomer IPL chief stated the two franchises should be completely banned and not just for two years.

He also went on to say the former IPL COO Sundar Rama should be sacked.

Modi welcomed the verdict and opined that it was just the first step towards clean up of Indian cricket.

Star-studded Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals were suspended for two years from the IPL by a Supreme Court-appointed committee in a clean up of cricket hit by the 2013 betting scam involving their top officials Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra.

Meiyappan, a former Team Principal of India Cements Ltd (ICL)-owned franchise CSK and Kundra, co-owner of Jaipur IPL that runs Rajasthan Royals (RR), were suspended for life from any matches conducted by BCCI.
