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.
@Another North Indian:
You need to understand India, my friend. Your blind faith in Indian justice system is appreciated but completely misplaced.
Indian justice system is a big cesspool of corruption.
Let me tell you something you have never bothered to think about. Indian justice system is worse than Pakistan's.
There are thousands of examples. Only one has to have the eyes first to open up and then the honesty to observe and then the guts to digest.
Water bottle, to be judgmental one would need to show some judgement. So, no, I don't trust you. If any of these parties are guilty, a good chance is that they will be found. If you want to believe that Indian judiciary is like Pakistan's, you can believe so.
Hilarious sight of Pakistanis jumping up and down :)
None of you may understand this, but there is a justice system. If he is found guilty, he will have to pay for this. Now, if you can wrap your heads around that you would spare the poor chair or bed you are jumping on.
Pakistani cricketers always exposed by Foreign Investigation Agencies, but it is Indian democracy & if Dhoni will found guilty its over. No if No but, if he is guilty than he is, At present he is innocent.
Rome wasn't built in a day. It is a long road to equality and justice. I am happy we are on the right path albeit moving along a little slower than I would like it to.
This is just another hoax like #mubaifalseflag Just one more wishful thinking of some of Pakistani friends who think that now they have nailed it, its tit for tat for Indians they have maligned the name of Pakistan in world, now they will have to have their own medicine. Again I am sorry this news will die its natural death.
Hahahahahaha, I'll just sit here and laugh at all the Indians trying to defend him. Yeah good luck with that. Oh and thanks for ruining cricket for everyone by bring things such as money laundering into it cough IPL cough
Indians will remain in denial mode till the funeral of cricket
Hello Dear Mirza....is Dhoni you brother in Law?
Color of money can be blinding. Their should be some semblance of decency. This is just not cricket...noble game destroyed by greed and glamor.
IPL have turned dozens of players into millionaires...but left the cricket poorer. What a shame.
This is what happens when money rules the roost...just like in India. When 'Lakshmi' is the goddess, people will run for money. Who cares about cricket, integrity, principles, honesty...they are obsolete words now.
You bet...you abet...India is the world power in cricket betting. Wondering why it was not got the legal protection like betting in horse racing.
Cricket in India is rotten from top to bottom. The BBCI chief is a crook, with his son in law indicted now...obviously abetted by Srinavasan(He himself was proven guilty, earlier). India is the headquarter of betting and abetting with the largest pool of qualified bookies in the world...other nations don't stand a chance when it comes to betting. It is huge business in India to whiten your money through cricket Karma.
It's so cute hearing Pakistani haters babbling about Indian cricket. This is just a report, nothing is proved. And as far as world is concerned. Pakistan is isolated not India. Big LOL for Pakistani haters. They think of ever thing as fixing to console them-self.
Untill the case of MSD is proven, not 1 can call him a fixer... And pakistanis who are happy must not forget that charge is still not proven... And we have got 8 votes... It means, that other boards hav faith in us minus superpower pakistan and lanka... And u should playnot with fixers 8 countries but with arabs and china...
@Syed: according to times of India, but the times of India is based on ''according to lalit modi''.. no pakis are going to read actual news. seems their brain is also affected by polio.
The bubble bursts.. India wants to make cricket WWE.
Oh dont worry man! BCCI on your back!
