IPL was clean during my time, says Lalit Modi
Saturday 18 May 2013

Former chairman of the Indian Premier League said Thursday was the sad day for Indian cricket. Speaking to the media after three Rajasthan Royals players, including Sreesanth, was arrested allegedly for spot-fixing at least three separate IPL games, Modi slammed the current IPL organisers for "lack of governance."

Modi said: "There is no mechanism now, there is no governance in IPL", adding that the BCCI, the owners of the T20 league, may have ignored warnings from the International Cricket Council.

"I was the target of underworld because I had zero tolerance on match-fixing," said Modi in a TV interview on Thursday. "But when I was in charge, the IPL never had an issue with match-fixing," Modi concluded.
