New Delhi:

Under pressure IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi on welcomed all probe into the functioning of the cash-awash Twenty20 League, saying he would extend all sort of help to the investigators.

"Welcome all investigation - ready to extend all cooperation," Modi wrote on his Twitter page, claiming lot of what appeared in the media are nothing but just speculation.

Since Modi revealed the IPL Kochi stakeholders' names on this social networking site, it opened a can of worms, leading to union minister Shashi Tharoor's exit from the goverment and Income Tax raids in IPL office in Mumbai.

The IT department has shot a 10-point questionnaire to BCCI, while Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said all aspects of the Indian Premier League, including allegations of betting and money laundering, would be probed.

"All aspects, including sources of funding and routes through which the funds arrived, would be looked into. Appropriate action as per law would be taken. No guilty or wrong-doer will be spared," Mukherjee said.

Lalit Modi is currently in Dubai to attend an International Cricket Council meeting.
