London-based Modi tweeted a letter he claims to have written to International Cricket Council (ICC) CEO Dave Richardson in June 2013, passing on “some information that I have just got.” He told Richardson that he could pass the same to the anti-corruption and security unit of the ICC if he thought so fit.
Modi then went on to name the three players, who he claims were in close contact with the real estate tycoon
Who was also named in the letter.
Modi stated that he had been informed by “reliable sources” that the tycoon had paid in cash and kind to the three players. He concluded by saying that “I hope this is not true but if true it could mean more are involved.”
