New Delhi: Former Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi on Sunday opposed the three-member committee suggested by the Board of Control for Cricket to the Supreme Court to probe the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal and demanded an inquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
"There should be no compromise on new panel. Current proposed panel has Srini cronies on it. Supreme Court should allow Cbi 2 only do enquiry," Modi said.
BCCI proposed a three-member committee to the Supreme Court to probe the IPL corruption case on the directives of the top court. The Working Committee in its emergent meeting in Mumbai on Sunday suggested names of former India all-rounder Ravi Shastri, former Calcutta High Court Chief Justice JN Patel and ex-CBI Director RK Raghavan as members of the probe committee.

The Supreme Court directed the BCCI in the last hearing of the case on April 16 to suggest names of persons who will conduct a "fair probe" into the IPL VI spot-fixing and betting scandal. The apex court is expected to consider the suggestion by the BCCI in the next hearing on April 22 and pass orders on the future course of the probe.
