The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to suspend Rajasthan Royals' co-owner Raj Kundra till an inquiry into allegations of betting against him is completed.
Below is Raj Kundra's statement:
All those who know me are aware that sport is my first love. I own a minority 11.7 percent share in Rajasthan Royals as well as a majority share of the Super Fight League in India which has become the largest MMA league in Asia within a year of its launch. I have singlehandedly provided job opportunities and training to 200 Indian fighters who were doing nothing but misusing their strength on the streets or in underground illegal fight clubs. I am currently working on football to develop its popularity amongst youngsters and also to provide better infrastructure and training to them. It shocks, saddens and hurts me when my integrity towards Sport is questioned, especially knowing that there are very few who have taken the initiative and been successful in the development of sport in India.
