Former chairman of the Indian Premier League said Thursday was the sad day for Indian cricket. Speaking to the media after three Rajasthan Royals players, including Sreesanth, was arrested allegedly for spot-fixing at least three separate IPL games, Modi slammed the current IPL organisers for "lack of governance."

Modi said: "There is no mechanism now, there is no governance in IPL", adding that the BCCI, the owners of the T20 league, may have ignored warnings from the International Cricket Council.

Former Indian Test spinner and Member of Parliament Kirti Azad too had indicated this on Thursday morning when the news of the troika's arrest in Mumbai broke.
