Lalit Modi hails SC's decision to reject BCCI's proposed panel

Former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi welcomed the Supreme Court's decision to ask Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee to continue the IPL spot-fixing probe, hoping that it will "blow the lid" on corruption in the T20 league.

After asking BCCI to form a committee for an internal probe, the apex court on Tuesday wanted to know if the three-member Mudgal panel, which indicted Gurunath Meiyappan for betting in IPL matches, would like to continue the investigation.

Justice Mudgal has given his consent to continue the probe but a final order is expected to come out on April 29.

"Good to see the honourable Supreme Court taking the right direction by appointing Justice Mudgal to go forward and finish the investigation," Modi tweeted.

"Lee (sic) know Justice Mudgal is through in his work. I am sure he will blow the lid on this farce subjected to sports loving fan. Justice at last," read his next tweet.

Modi also lashed out at the BCCI officials, who have backed under-fire N Srinivasan, accused of turning a blind eye to all the wrong things happening under his nose.

"If the BCCI have nothing to hide then why didn't they propose a fair and unbiased panel. The BCCI has made no effort to clean up the mess; all members backing Srinivasan are also guilty by association," his series of tweets read.

Directing at England and Wales Cricket Board Chairman Giles Clarke, Modi said, "I had warned Giles Clarke and ICC that this day would come. Now you boys are my next target for cleansing global cricket of filth and fixers."
