Mumbai:Baroda Cricket Association president Chirayu Amin was on Monday unanimously appointed as the interim commissioner of the Indian Premier League after Lalit Modi was suspended late last night by the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
Addressing a press conference after the meeting, Manohar said Modi would be charged on five counts — shady initial bids of Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab, a suspect broadcast deal with Sony, bid rigging of two new franchises this year and his behavioural pattern.
“The chargesheet was discussed and the Committee also appointed Chirayu Amin as the interim chairman. BCCI CAO Ratnakar Shetty will look into all the records,” Manohar said.
Speaking after the meeting, Manohar said, “IPL is a great property and is being loved by one and all. However, in the last 15 days, there was lot of allegations and counter allegations were made through media, and, as a result, the Board has decided to look into the allegations.
