ICC confirms sharing Lalit Modi’s mail with BCCI
The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Sunday acknowledged having received former cricket administrator Lalit Modi’s confidential e-mail -- in which he accused three international players of being involved in betting -- and sharing it with the Indian cricket board’s anti-corruption unit. ICC said the information was also provided to its <g data-gr-id="15">Anti Corruption</g> and Security Unit (ACSU) and it dealt with it in accordance with its procedures.
Former Indian Premier League (IPL) chief Lalit Modi alleged on Saturday that Indian cricketers Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and West Indian Dwayne Bravo had taken bribes from a bookie who was also a builder. The three are all members of IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings.
Modi claimed through a series of tweets on Saturday that real estate tycoon of HDIL.co Baba Diwan had given apartments to the players in addition to money. He said when he was the IPL chief he “had banned him (Baba) from bidding for any IPL team”. Modi claimed that Diwan was a good friend of Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra, who have been implicated in the 2013 IPL betting and <g data-gr-id="20">match fixing</g> case by the Supreme Court.
Modi also posted a letter which he claimed he wrote to ICC CEO Dave Richardson in June 2013, passing all the information and urging him to act upon it.
