Former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi on Thursday lauded Supreme Court’s verdict on IPL betting and spot-fixing scandal and said he was confident of being vindicated.
Modi expressed his thoughts through a series of Tweets on Twitter. Extremely happy with the Hon. Supreme Court judgement on #srinivasan ..Always believed that I would be vindicated #IPLVerdict.
He said that however he had not read the entire verdict by the apex court, he particularly liked the court nailing Srini for amending the rule 6.2.4 that created conflict of interest.
Modi was also hopeful that the three-member committee formed by the Supreme Court would do justice to the case, in its entirety.
Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court said Srinivasan cannot contest elections for the Indian cricket board’s governing body presidency as long as he is involved in a “conflict of interest” situation as an owner of IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings.
The apex court said this while striking down an amendment to the BCCI rules which permitted the office bearers of the apex cricket body to have commercial interests in the IPL and the Champions League Twenty20 and all events organised by the BCCI.
