BCCI sees SMS foul play

In the wake of media reports that Srinivasan purportedly sent text messages to IPL owners, asking them to align with the Board or be prepared to face the ‘taste of its medicine,’ the BCCI issued a statement saying, “The Board would like to clarify that no such messages have been sent from his (Srinivasan’s) mobile.”

The purported text message from Srinivasan’s phone had said, “As we have been saying, please align yourself with us. Or else everyone will get the same taste of the medicine we have given today to Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab. Owners should not think they are above the BCCI.

“You should be happy we allow you to participate. We know how to clip your wings and we will run the IPL the way we want to. You can either be a part of it or we can find a way for you to get out. We will throw Lalit Modi and anyone attached with him. So best avoid talking to him.”
