CRICKET'S 'DOOMSDAY': The PTI also reported Modi was his usual outspoken self when he said it will be "doomsday" for Indian cricket if Srinivasan gets re-elected as BCCI president. Modi: "Across the globe, the fans, advertisers and administrators will be disappointed at this if Srinivasan gets re-elected. A wrong message would be sent. It will be a doomsday for Indian cricket" (PTI, 9/23). The PTI reported Sri Lanka Cricket on Monday denied reports that all-rounder Thisara Perera indulged in match-fixing during this year's IPL, saying that "it has full faith in its players." The SLC rebuttal "comes in the wake of a media report which stated that a Mumbai-based bookie fixed an IPL match" for Rs. 6 crore ($958,000) after striking deals with four players of Sunrisers Hyderabad (PTI, 9/23).
POLICE COLLABORATE: In Mumbai, Rahul Mahajani wrote "the friction between the Mumbai and Delhi police has been set aside for a change and the two forces are co-operating in the Twenty20 betting and spot-fixing cases as there are many common accused." The Mumbai crime branch "handed over evidence" related to banned fast bowler S. Sreesanth to the Delhi police on Saturday following a court order. Mumbai crime branch sources said that "since Sreesanth, who has been banned for life by the BCCI, is not an accused in their case, all articles seized from a hotel at the Bandra Kurla Complex where he allegedly stayed, including key CCTV footage, was handed over to the Delhi police" (HINDUSTAN TIMES, 9/23). PAKISTAN TODAY reported Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf "could be named as a wanted accused in the Mumbai Crime Branch's charge-sheet" of the IPL betting scam. A senior Crime Branch officer said that "deliberations about Rauf's status were under way and the chargesheet is expected to be filed by the end of the week." The officer said, "We will reach a decision on the matter soon" (PAKISTAN TODAY, 9/23).
