New Delhi:

Former Indian all-rounder Ravi Shastri has been summoned by a law enforcement agency probing alleged financial irregularities in the Indian Premier League (IPL), reports said on Thursday.

He has been asked to help the Enforcement Directorate over questions relating to the T20 league in the first three editions as he was on the governing council, the Press Trust of India news agency said.

Shastri, who is currently out of the country, has been called to the directorate's offices in Mumbai next week.

Lait Modi, the driving force behind the money-spinning IPL, was removed as the chairman of the tournament last year.

He faces criminal charges, including false accounting and accusations by the Indian cricket board that more than $106 million was misappropriated during his three-year tenure as IPL chairman.

Shastri, now a noted commentator, played 80 Tests and 150 one-dayers.
