Durban: A concerned Indian Premier League will wait for the full facts to come out before taking action into the match-fixing allegations in the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Kolkata Knight Riders went into the match without their top-run getter Australian Brad Hodge for the match against Royal Challengers. But Hodge, instead of sitting in the dressing room, was found in the hospitality box during the match.

"There is an anti-corruption unit. We will look into the TV footage and investigate about Hodge's presence in the hospitality box," Modi was quoted as saying.

Kolkata lost the match despite putting up a massive 173-run target on board. ICC has earlier raised fears that matches in the IPL could be fixed. The BCCI had initially turned down ICC anti-corruption unit's service saying that the fee was too high.
