The BCCI rubbished suspended IPL commissioner Lalit Modi’s charges that board secretary N Srinivasan tried to fix the 2009 IPL players’ auction and called it “a blatant lie”.
Modi had alleged that Srinivasan tried to ‘fix’ the bid of England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff in Chennai Super Kings’ favour. BCCI president Shashank Manohar backed the board chairman and said: “I can produce papers which prove that the charges leveled by Mr Modi are a blatant lie.”
Srinivasan had earlier refuted Modi’s charges saying CSK outbid the Rajasthan Royals. Meanwhile, the Disciplinary Committee will meet in New Delhi on Sunday to decide the procedures and schedules for its probe against Modi.
