Ex- IPL commissioner Lalit Modi, who is seen as an opponent of N Srinivasan and was prohibited by the BCCI last year for financial issues, said on yesterday tight action required to be taken against the franchise and its authorities after a probe confirmed the BCCI chief’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan was taking part in betting.
Lalit Modi also claimed that apart from Srinivasan, MS Dhoni was taking part in a cover-up in the match-fixing scandal. “Of course, he (Dhoni) is involved in a cover-up. Why else would he deny that Meiyappan was the team principal when the scandal broke,” Lalit Modi said.
“Life ban on all connected is a must,” Modi wrote on his Twitter page. “So I guess Srini’s 2day victory as future warlord of cricket was short lived. I told u all so.”
Ex- BCCI president AC Muthiah also pointed out that Srinivasan’s part as an administrator was untenable.
