Bengaluru, May 11: Former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi dropped a bombshell on Monday afternoon as he claimed at least 4 Chennai Super Kings (CSK) players were "involved in fixing".
Modi took to Twitter to put out his "BREAKING STORY" on Monday as he wrote, "So here is my BREAKING STORY - IF THE #HONORABLE #SUPREME #COURT WAS TO REVEAL THE NAMES OF PLAYERS INVOLVED IN FIXING - at least 4 are CSK." He said both Indian and international players were involved.
In a series of Tweets, Modi said a lot of money was involved in betting on IPL games. He said, "9,000-10,000 crores per game" was the betting money on the cash-rich Twenty20 league.
"1/3 tweets Again these jokers in @BCCI @ICC @IPL #indiacements @ianuragthakur trying 2 hoodwink us all in regard to #illegal betting quantum."
"2/3 tweet - I have been saying for years - wake up media fellows it's more like 9000- 10,000 crores per game. Why do u think #monster is .."
"3/3 trying to stay #put on his #chair That's where he gets his #raw #material to fund his #buying of #votes, #politicians, #players," Modi tweeted.
IPL is in its 8th edition this year. CSK have won the tournament twice. Paceman S Sreesanth of Rajasthan Royals was banned for life by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for his alleged involvement in spot-fixing during IPL 2013.
