Dubai:  The ICC on Sunday confirmed that it had received a letter from Lalit Modi in 2013 in which the former IPL Commissioner alleged that three players were bribed by a business tycoon.

London-based Modi on Saturday tweeted a letter, which he claims to have written to ICC CEO Dave Richardson in June 2013, passing on "some information" regarding the alleged involvement of two leading Indian cricketers and a West Indian player received cash and kind from the businessman.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Sunday posted a statement on its website regarding the email and clarified that it acted as per standard procedure.

"The ICC confirms that Mr Modi's confidential email, which was received in June 2013, and which has recently been published on Twitter, was provided to the ACSU at the time. The ACSU handled that information in accordance with its standard operating procedures, which included sharing it with the BCCI's anti-corruption unit," said the ICC statement.
