Lalit Modi claims ICC sitting on evidence of match fixing in Champions League

Exiled cricket administrator claims ICC is harbouring evidence of corruption.

Lalit ModiExiled cricket administrator Lalit Modi took to Twitter to make sweeping allegations about match-fixing and corruption in cricket.

He claimed that the International Cricket Council is sitting on evidence of match-fixing in the Champions League and “other forms of global cricket”.

Modi, who has been holed out in the UK since being deposed as the chief of Indian Premier League in 2010, said he has evidence of corruption in the Champions League and wants to reveal it within a week.

“I've evidence to suggest there was fixing in the Champions League T20 and if the ICC don’t bring it out in the public within a week; I will,” he tweeted this evening.

“The BCCI and the ICC are not interested in solving the problem of fixing in the sport.”
“The ICC has evidence against various players being involved in fixing during the Champions League and other forms of global cricket.”
“The ICC's been sitting on evidence for long time due to certain vested interests in world cricket.”

He said the recorded phone conversations of Vindoo Dara Singh revealed the actor had been introduced to Indian cricketers by IPL chief Sundar Raman.

“The link between Vindoo Dara Singh and IPL CEO needs to be investigated.”

He added that the ICC along with the Indian board have no will to rid the sport of corruption.

“The BCCI and the ICC are not interested in solving the problem of fixing in the sport,” he said.

“TV deals are taking precedence over cricket right now. No one cares about fixing in Cement house right now. They want to cement deals only.”
