Lalit Modi takes potshot at BCCI Secy

New Delhi, May 10: Former Indian Premier League chairman Lalit on May 9 took potshots at the Cricket Board officials for changing the pitch for the IPL match between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings in Jaipur, suggesting that BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan could have a hand in it.

A BCCI pitch inspector visited Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur after Mumbai Indians captain Sachin Tendulkar criticised the strip there as "two-paced and difficult" after their IPL match against Rajasthan Royals on April 29.

It was then ordered that the last two matches of Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur -- today against Chennai Super Kings and on May 11 against Royal Challengers Bangalore -- would be played on a new strip.

"A little birdie just whispered that the big game in Jaipur has been moved to a side wicket on the Square. Why? ask Rca official and CSK ...," Modi wrote on his Twitter page.

"Shows clearly how small things like a pitch selection can affect a game can be used by the powers that be. And it goes unnoticed," Modi wrote.

"N Srinivasan company's new name - Indian Cement."
