Mumbai: Former Indian cricket team physiotherapist Dr Ali Irani made further shocking revelations that he carried parcels for all the cricketers, and not only Mohammad Azharuddin during the years he was with the team.In an interview to an eveninger here Irani said during the tours hotel bellhops used to deliver bags to his room and then each cricketer would pick up his bags. He did not mention whether he had any knowledge about the contents in the bags.The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)'s investigator Madhavan had found Irani guilty and called him a conduit between bookies and match-fixing cricketers. BCCI has banned him from having such posts again to which Irani plans to appeal."They (BCCI) are like parents," he pleaded.But in the interview he said he was conduit only in the sense that he used to be a sort of mediator or carrying cricket messages between boys and managers and also BCCI whenever there was a misunderstanding."Why should I fix matches for Rs 60,000 as has been alleged when the boys (cricketers) out of respect and appreciation used to share their prize and also logo money," he countered and informed that from cricket - as physio for 10 years - he had earned Rs 20 lakhs and showed it in his income sheet to Madhavan. Irani though is not denying that the element of match-fixing existed and told the interviewer that if investigations continue then more dirt will be found.UNI
