New Delhi: A defiant Lalit Kumar Modi on Tuesday continued his tirade against the BCCI president N Srinivasan and said he will not “sit back quietly” and watch the Tamil Nadu strongman “destroy” Indian cricket.
Modi admitted that to some extent he is responsible for Srinivasan’s “vices”. “Yes, to some extent, I am responsible for Srinivasan’s vices, but that doesn’t mean I will sit back quietly and watch Srinivasan destroy Indian cricket,” Modi told a television channel.
“Yes I made mistakes but I created the biggest brand of Indian cricket. I will bring up issues if he does anything wrong. I have learnt from my mistakes but Srinivasan is just the opposite,” he said. “I am not disappointed (at the prospect of) being banned because I am already suspended.”
The former IPL chief said what bothered him most nowadays was the prospect of Srinivasan getting a one-year extension as BCCI chief at the Board’s Annual General Meeting on Sunday.
“I will deal with my (proposed) suspension at my level. But Srinivasan getting re-elected will be a major disappointment for me and for Indian cricket fans,” Modi said.
“If Indian cricket is at stake, I am ready to take on my ex-colleagues,” he added.
