NEW DELHI: After the Indian Supreme Court appointed Justice Mudgal to head a committee which indicted Chennai Super Kings principal Gurunath Meiyappan of betting during IPL six, former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi on Monday accused CSK skipper MS Dhoni of being involved in the cover-up of the incidents, according to The Times of India.

"Dhoni is also involved in the cover-up," Modi said during an interview with CNN-IBN from London.

Dhoni had earlier said that Meiyappan had nothing to do with cricketing affairs of CSK.

Other than accusing MS Dhoni of involving in the cover-up, Modi asked for life ban of BCCI president N Srinvasan and scrapping of CSK from IPL.

"Srinivasan has brought disrepute to the game, he should be banned from entering any sport and it's high time this man is banned from the BCCI," said Modi.

Meiyappan, formerly the Team Principal of the Chennai Super Kings, was indicted for betting by a three-member committee headed by former Punjab and Haryana Chief Justice Mukul Mudgal, which was appointed by the Supreme Court to investigate the IPL spot-fixing scandal.

Srinivasan had defended Meiyappan, calling him merely a "cricket enthusiast".

"Glad to see that Justice Mudgal report - confirms just what I had been saying. Life ban on all connected is a must. So I guess Srini's 2 day victory as future warlord of cricket was short lived," Modi tweeted.

Water Bottle, I don't have blind faith in anything. You, on the other hand, do. You have joined Pakistanis jumping up and down claiming that justice will not be served the moment a case has come to light.

@water bottle,somebody above said that rome was not built in a day, I guess u did not understand that. or u did not read it. u are asking somebody to trust u without knowing ur real name itself, that to u calling urself judgemental. he he tall one man. all systems are run by humans collectively, to err is human. so don't take any thing to be ultimate. A small fish is eaten by a big fish that is nature. Justice is served at the right time always. It may be delayed that is it.
