Modi was sacked as IPL chief on the eve of the Twenty20 extravaganza final in 2010 due to alleged financial irregularities.
“The hearings started on September 26, 2010 and for 20 months the BCCI put forth their witnesses and statements recorded. My defence began only on March 3, 2013 and abruptly ended on April 22, 2013,” PTI quoted Modi as saying to Times Now channel.
The disciplinary committee comprised Jyotiraditya Scindia and Arun Jaitley who have filed an exhaustive report after a probe. “They presented their witnesses for 20 months and I was not allowed to do the same.
They could have given me another two weeks time more. They did not give time for me to come down myself. They said they will not take further submissions,” he added. Modi’s life ban could be announced after the Board’s Special General Meeting (SGM) in Chennai on September 25.
