New Delhi: Former BCCI President Sharad Pawar on Wednesday, demanded a Home Ministry inquiry into all the 75 matches of the scandal-hit IPL VI, saying not doing so will give an impression that the Cricket Board is not serious about dealing with corruption in the sport.

"If the BCCI gives in writing to the Home Minister and request to investigate all the matches, the government can then investigate all the matches. They can interrogate anybody. They have legal sanction," Pawar said. (Related read: Former BCCI president Shashank Manohar too calls for all-out probe into IPL 6)

"If, however, the board does not accept it and says its own anti-corruption will do the job, I feel the board is not serious in dealing with the wrongdoings," he added.
