For former International Cricket Council chief Jagmohan Dalmiya, who has also headed the Indian cricket board, cleaning cricket is paramount. He suggests that if stopping the Indian Premier League temporarily helps so that, it should be done.

Speaking to NDTV on Thursday, Dalmiya said that all forms of 'sleaze' have to be removed from the sport. Asked if he was referring to IPL, he said: "If necessary and if that is what is needed for the shorter period. Whatever you need to clean cricket, you need to go ahead and if it (IPL) needs to be stopped for the time being, it has to be stopped."

The president of the Cricket Association of Bengal also said that it is for all cricketers , administrators and 'all others' to know when cricket is completely clean. "After all, if we cannot judge if this is clean cricket or not, it is pity on our part."
