BCCI chief defends Srinivasan, says Modi is a liar

BCCI President Shashank Manohar told reporters after the Working Committee meeting here that Modi's accusations against Srinivasan, who owns the Chennai Super Kings team, were "blatant lies".

"I can produce papers which prove that the charges levelled by Mr Modi against Mr Srinivasan are blatant lies," Manohar said.

Asked whether these papers were tabled at today's meet and accepted by the committee members, Manohar merely said, "yes".

Two days ago Srinivasan, had rubbished reports that he tried to 'fix' the players' auction and insisted he won the bid for star England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff "fair and square".
A TV channel had claimed that Srinivasan, in connivance with Modi, tried to fix the bid for Flintoff in the Super Kings' favour.

The channel had quoted an email purportedly written by Modi to Srinivasan, which read "what a nightmare to convince them not to terminate (Sohail) Tanvir and also not to take Flintoff. (Shane) Warne went off the handle. But have managed it by using stick and carrot strategy. Thus they have USD 1.875 million. Much love Lalit".
Warne is the captain-cum-coach of Rajasthan Royals
