"I am financing the petition against Srinivasan and others. There's no harm in backing anybody who helps me," Modi told CNN-IBN.

"BCCI wants to sweep everything under the carpet," he said. Verma, who is secretary of unrecognised Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), had filed the petition last year in the wake of IPL spot-fixing scandal.

Modi said Apex Court's intervention was a must to make cricket corruption free. "It's a sad day in Indian cricket history. Money and muscle power has found its way into BCCI. SC intervention is the only way forward," Modi said.

Modi says he has no regrets not being part of cricket administration in the country as long as it is run by "crooks".
