IPL founder alleges attempts on his life


Disgraced Indian Premier League founder Lalit Modi alleges he's survived three attempts on his life for refusing to fix matches in the cash-rich Twenty20 event.

Modi, who was sacked from the IPL by Indian cricket chiefs in 2010 over allegations of corruption and money-laundering, has made the claims in a new book.

He says one incident occurred in Dubai in March 2009, while the others came in South Africa a month later and in Thailand in 2010.

The book says on each occasion Modi was warned of the attempts by the police or the intelligence agencies.

Former Black Cap Chris Cairns won a libel suit against Modi earlier this year after fixing allegations were levelled at him.
