The war of words between Lalit Modi and the BCCI got worse with Modi going public and confessing a lot of the deeds he did back when he was the chairman of IPL.

He tweeted. “ICC used Bird and Bird, a UK based law firm, to ensure regulations to stop ICL. Advertisers were called and told if they advertised on ICL then they would have been barred from all BCCI cricket. Players were told do not play for ICL or risk being blacklisted. BCCI had to implement this through a change of constitution,” Modi revealed. “BCCI even terminated Zee Sports’ contract unfairly as they had launched ICL and BCCI wanted a window for IPL. Commentators were called and told not to associate with ICL or BCCI will ensure we will not take you… BCCI even went to the extent of blacklisting suppliers like TV production companies and event managers.”

The whole of India saw how the ICL perished in front of the might of IPL but no one knew exactly how the BCCI acquired such dominance over ICL. This revelation by Modi now seems to answer all the doubts. There were reports earlier that BCCI had issued warnings to the players not to join ICL, and doing so will blacklist them.

This statement by Modi confirms that and reveals many more. This shows how BCCI used ICC for its own purpose to kill ICL.

To all this, BCCI chief, Manohar said “I don’t want to react at all to Mr Modi. Modi seems to fascinate the media. He does not fascinate me”. BCCI seem least bothered by the comments and the way this new has spread in the media and the public. This shows the high handed nature of working of the BCCI. They should be accountable to the millions of people who follow the sport of cricket in India and make it so popular.
