Mumbai: Former I P L (Indian Premier League) chairman, Lalit Modi, has claimed spot-fixing is rife in the game but the authorities are helpless in ruling proof to bring the guilty to book.
In the book 'Bookie Gambler Fixer Spy: A Journey to the Heart of Cricket Underworld by Ed Hawkins, Modi has said that during his IPL tenure, his life was in danger by the underworld for refusing to fix IPL matches.
Spot-fixing is rife in the game. And I'm talking internationally. It's a Pandora's Box. It's staring you directly in the face, but difficult to prove. Almost impossible to prove, he is quoted as saying in the book, according to a release by the publish house PR agency.
