Mumbai, 21 June 2011: Former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi has ridiculed the BCCI for reportedly suggesting that he might be involved in the organisation of the upcoming Sri Lankan Premier League, in which Indian players have been barred from participating.


“It seems best way to scuttle any plans to say Lalit Modi is behind it. Good to know that just mentioning my name can send a shiver down their spines,” Modi wrote on his Twitter page.


“Guess they are a bunch of spineless people running the show. Who have no clue as to what to do. Not that they ever had. I had to do it for them,” he said.


Media reports today claimed that the reason why the BCCI refused to permit Indian players to participate in the league was because it believed that Modi might be involved in its organisation.


“It just shows that Mandarins at BCCI have no clue what is happening in the cricket world. They can’t see beyond their own shadow,” fumed Modi.


On the official front, the BCCI has stated that their refusal of permission to the players is based on the fact that the league is being conducted by a private party on behalf of Sri Lanka Cricket.


But the SLC has denied it, stating that the event was completely owned by it. Modi also accused the BCCI of arm-twisting other Boards to ban the now defunct Indian Cricket League.


ICL was bankrolled by Essel Group owned by industrialist Subhash Chandra and India’s 1983 World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev was its executive board chairman.


“When I was at BCCI - the mandate given then was to scuttle ICL. BCCI arm twisted every cricket board and ICC to change there constitution,” Modi wrote on his ‘Twitter’ account.


“The constitution of every board was changed and ICC made ICL redundant by its act - by making it unauthorized cricket.


Worldwide anti competition laws were studied and finally thou against most Laws - the ICC changed there constitution to protect its members,” he wrote.
