New Delhi - The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has filed a criminal complaint against former IPL chairperson Lalit Modi, local media reported on Wednesday.

The Press Trust of India said the BCCI has accused Modi of "misappropriation of funds to the tune of $104m" in its complaint with the Chennai Police.

BCCI secretary N Srinivasan says in the complaint that the BCCI also has concerns over irregularities in the bidding process for certain franchises in the lucrative Indian Premier League.

Chennai Police Commissioner T Rajendran said police were examining the complaint before forwarding it to its Central Crime Branch.

Last week the BCCI terminated the contracts of IPL teams Rajhastan Royals and Kings XI Punjab.

    Lalit Modi is a disease to cricket. His lucrative league has been a major role player in systematically tampering with the image of cricket and cheapening this great game of ours. I'm so gload the recent test series between India & Australia was an exciting one. Better scheduling by the ICC (which they are trying) is all that's needed to 'save' cricket, You don't need to cut this, tweak that and change history & tradition. The BCCI are a bunch of money grabbing gits who act like a dictatorship within cricket, but hopefully they will start to show some integrity. As for Modi, I hope his circus gets caned. The Champions League was the only good thing to come out of the IPL, where the cricket in general is pretty bland. That's alot of funding misused!
