Modi questions move of changing auction norms

New Delhi: Former Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi on Friday questioned the IPL Governing Council`s move to change the players auction norms for the fourth season of the T20 league in the last minute.

Modi, who was suspended as the chairman and commissioner of the league after the last year`s IPL final on charges of alleged financial bunglings and rigging of bids, questioned the transparency of the process after players were auctioned through a pre-decided order of auction list.

"The changing of players auction order as pointed by some franchisees is an issue which I highlighted when I saw the rules changed last minute.

"The order changing — should not have been allowed — as it gives advantage to teams that knew of it before," Modi wrote on his Twitter page.
