Modi to look into Knight Riders-Royal Challengers match footageMay 13th, 2009 - 11:07 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, May 13 (IANS) Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman and commissioner Lalit Modi has said that he would look into the footage of the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royals Challengers Bangalore to see if the game was fixed.
Knight Riders surprisingly dropped their top-run getter Australian Brad Hodge for the match against Royal Challengers. But Hodge, instead of sitting in the dressing room, was found in the hospitality box during the match.
“There is an anti-corruption unit. We will look into the TV footage and investigate about Hodge’s presence in the hospitality box,” Modi was quoted as saying by India Today’s website.
Knight Riders lost the match despite putting up a challenging 173-run target on board.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has raised fears that matches in the IPL could be fixed. The BCCI had initially turned down ICC anti-corruption unit’s service saying that the fee was too high.
