New Delhi: Keeping faith in the IPL franchisee owners, BCCI President N Srinivisan on Tuesday refused to believe that the team owners may have some involvement in the spot-fixing as the Twenty20 league is under-scanner now.
A sting operation by a private TV Channel today led to suspension of five Indian players from the league by the Indian Cricket Board on allegations of spot-fixing. The BCCI chief said it would be wrong to say at this stage if owners have any role in it.
"All the franchisees are people of stature behind it. It will be wrong to presume they are doing something wrong and then make enquiries. If something comes to light it is different. All the franchisees are reputable people & I have respect for them," Srinivasan was quoted as saying by a TV channel.
