Lalit Modi is a spoilt brat, says Bedi

Bedi, going on the offensive against the members of the IPL Governing Council and the cricket board (BCCI), said greed took over their mind and they all turned a blind eye towards the IPL czar and his sleazy functioning of the tournament.

“Lalit Modi is a spoilt brat. Without knowing anything about the game, without knowing it at the grass-roots level, look what he was running, a cricket tournament. And above all, during the final at D Y Patil stadium in Mumbai, this bugger was tossing the coin in the presence of Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Look at the guts of this person,” Bedi said. “To my mind, Modi has damaged the Indian cricket very badly. I must say, it was not the need but the greed that had taken everybody with a clean swipe.

“They (BCCI and IPL governing council) knew it all along, but they did not have the guts to put Modi in place. In a sense they were colluding. They turned a blind eye towards him and the tournament. They were colluding. Bedi also asked the members of the GC to take moral responsibility and step down voluntarily.
