CVC Capital Partner’s entry has been questioned.
Lalit Modi, the former boss of the Indian Premier League i.e. IPL, has targeted BCCI for betting in the team auction. He tweeted that now it seems that even a betting company can buy a team in IPL. This is a new rule. The team has recently been auctioned off and one team owner is involved in betting. Doesn’t BCCI say its homework? What will anti-corruption do in such cases?
