Taking the controversy around him to the further level, controversial former IPL Chief Lalit Modi now alleged that Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja had taken bribes from a bookie.
In a series of tweets, Lalit claimed that Baba Diwan, a real estate tycoon of HDIL.co has supposedly 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 teams,” and added that he was a good friend of Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra.
Lalit also tweeted a letter which he claims to have written to ICC CEO Dave Richardson in June 2013 passing all the information.
In his tweets, Lalit accused BCCI, Anurag Thakur and India Cements of deceiving the public in the matter relating to betting.
"Again these jokers in @BCCI @ICC @IPL #indiacements @ianuragthakur trying 2 hoodwink us all in regard to #illegal betting quantum," was the exact tweet.
"I have been saying for years - wake up media fellows it's more like 9000- 10,000 crores per game. Why do u think #monster is trying to stay #put on his #chair That's where he gets his #raw #material to fund his #buying of #votes, #politicians, #players," he added.
