New Delhi, Jul 25: For the first time ICC President Sharad Pawar had expressed his opinion on Lalit Modi controversy.
While talking to CNN-IBN, Pawar said that Lalit Modi will have to face the music if he is found guilty of corruption.
"No question of protecting anybody. Not only Modi but anybody. If somebody has committed some mistake he will have to face the music," said ICC president.
The recent corruption scandal had tarnished the image of IPL to some extent and Modi was paying the price for his controversial style of functioning, said Pawar to the channel.
Pawar, however, had accepted Modi's contribution over IPL-success and making IPL a global brand.
But at the same time Pawar said, "I don't think IPL's overall position will be damaged. But definitely in the mind of cricket-loving people within India and outside they have started thinking in a different way that there seems to be some wrong things happening."
