Controversial former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi has alleged that two leading Indian cricketers and a West Indian player had been bribed by an Indian real estate tycoon, who is also a bookmaker.

London-based Modi tweeted a letter he claims to have written to International Cricket Council (ICC) CEO Dave Richardson in June 2013, passing on “some information that I have just got.”

He told Richardson that he could pass the same to the anti-corruption and security unit of the ICC if he thought so fit.

Modi then went on to name the three players, who he claims were in close contact with the real estate tycoon  who was also named in the letter.
