Lalit Modi, the IPL chairman, who was suspended by the BCCI amid allegations of financial impropriety, has said all decisions pertaining to the IPL were taken collectively by the governing council and approved by the governing body. Defending himself against the accusations, Modi insisted the IPL is "clean and transparent" and added he would take "full responsibility" in the event of an irregularity.

"In the last few days, we have had a lot of innuendos, and half truths and motivated leaks (about IPL)," Modi said at the presentation ceremony upon the conclusion of the IPL final, not too long before the BCCI issued him a show-cause notice. "I want to tell you that all decisions have been taken by the governing council and approved by the general body.

"Still as leader of the team I reassure you that if there is any flouting of the rules and regulations or any other irregularities I shall take full responsibility reassure you that if there is any flouting of rules and any irregularities I shall take full responsibility. On this occasion, I assure millions of passionate fans of the league and the game across the globe that the IPL is clean and transparent. We should not allow this brand to be diluted and we will not."

The IPL governing council is due to meet on Monday, but following his suspension, it appears unlikely that Modi will attend it. The meeting is likely to pick an interim IPL chairman and work out a plan for the future.

The BCCI would have preferred Modi resigning, as that would have ended the matter there; a suspension means, at some stage, documents and transactions being scrutinised. If his response is deemed unsatisfactory, the board will pass a resolution to terminate him at the working committee meeting on May 2. That will then go to vote at the special AGM, which can be held a week after the working committee meeting.

Modi now has 48 hours to respond to the all the decisions have been taken jointly by the governing council and approved by the general body of both the seasons 1 and 2 of the IPL.
