Former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi has stirred the fixing controversy in the mega-rich league again as he claimed that at least four players from the Chennai Super Kings franchise are involved in fixing.

Modi took to Twitter to make this claim. However, he did not reveal name of the players.  He tweeted that if the Supreme Court reveals the names of players involved in IPL spot-fixing, it would have four players from the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team.

Just days before the eighth edition of IPL comes to an end on 24 May, Modi’s tweets have brought into limelight the controversy once again. Modi stated that the BCCI is  trying to deceive the public in matters related to betting.

Modi also claimed that “9,000-10,000 crore per game” was the money being bet on the cash-rich Twenty20 league.

Paceman S Sreesanth of Rajasthan Royals was banned for life by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for his alleged involvement in spot-fixing during IPL 2013.
