In response to the Justice Mudgal IPL Probe Committee Report, in an interview to CNN-IBN, Lalit Modi has said that N. Srinivasan has brought disrepute to the game and must be banned from all sports.

Modi added that Srinivasan has gagged all players and BCCI officials.

Modi went on to say that India and Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni was also involved in the cover up and that the IPL team should now be scrapped.

Mr Modi also tweeted his views on the Justice Mudgal IPL Probe Committee Report, pointing out that he had called the Indian and CSK captain MS Dhoni as part of the cover-up based on the Mudgal report

If you want to read only one piece on IPL today, make it a point to read this one by Mukul Kesavan, writing in the Telegraph: Much ado about nothing

The uproar about the IPL following the ‘revelations’ about S. Sreesanth and his erring teammates threatens to become farcical...

N. Srinivasan, the BCCI president, is a special target for dead-ender venom. Everything he does is designated nefarious. The fact that he is in charge of the BCCI and the owner of an IPL franchise is deemed a wicked conflict of interest. When Srikkanth wore two hats, one as the chief selector of the national team and the other as brand ambassador for the Chennai Super Kings, the franchise owned by Srinivasan, journalists sang the conflict-of-interest ditty like a theme song. Srinivasan’s decision to make Dhoni a vice-president of India Cements Ltd, a company he happens to own, apparently compounds this conflict-of-interest problem. This carping has got to the stage where not even a man’s business is his own business, if you see what I mean.

If men are known by the company they keep, Mr Srinivasan is in very good company; Anil Kumble has had exactly the same problem with sanctimonious critics. India’s greatest bowler, its most pugnacious captain, a man who has a traffic landmark in Bangalore named after him, had his integrity called into question merely because he started up a player management company at the same time as he became president of the Karnataka State Cricket Association.

Rahul Dravid, a captain who's always taken pride in his integrity and his team, was visibly devastated by the spot-fixing shocker involving three of his team mates.

I am shocked, disappointed and distressed by the events that have resulted in the arrests last night and this morning

Rajasthan Royals is a special team and we have always operated as a family. So this is devastating to us.

We recently heard about scripted interviews. And today Lalit Modi, IPL's disgraced commissioner, suddenly announced on Twitter: There are so many allegations and now it’s time to talk. I’ve finally given a filmed interview. Wait and watch.

And then he even put up what he called "highlights" of an "interview" with Mihir Bose on Youtube himself :

along with what he called his "on the record - full interview":

For those who want to take their minds off from audio recordings...
