New Delhi: A day after Sunil Gavaskar cried foul over non-payment of his IPL dues, Lalit Modi has come out in support of the former Indian captain and said people like Sunny "should be rewarded and not crucified".
Speaking via Twitter, the former IPL Chairman said: "A lot is being said in the news about Sunny. I just want to clarify - Yes Sunny was promised the 4 Crores a Year by BCCI for IPL."
"Yes it's due to him for the years he served on the IPL Governing Council. We used his name and credibility when setting up the IPL," he tweeted.
