Lalit Modi, the founder and architect of the Indian Premier League, talks to former BBC Sports Editor and renowned sports and business commentator, Mihir Bose about a number of allegations which have been levelled against him.

In this video, Lalit Modi talks about the IPL matches played in South Africa and how other premier leagues operate:

• Indian elections meant domestic security was an issue

• Some were upset at the move to South Africa, but majority favoured the switch rather than cancel the tournament

• Without South Africa the fans, team owners and advertisers would have lost

• Many leagues around the world were studied in detail

• Most leagues have cultures developed over decades

• IPL was unique

• Most sports leagues are in debt but IPL is debt free
