India - Income tax investigators began probing the accounts of the Indian cricket board and the Indian Premier League on Thursday.

IPL commissioner Lalat Modi confirmed the investigators were at the cricket board and IPL offices at Wankhede Stadium.

"It is only an enquiry, not a raid," Modi said. "We will extend all possible cooperation to them."
