With the Delhi High Court allowing the BCCI to conduct its Special General Meeting (SGM) in Chennai tomorrow, the decks are cleared for the Board to impose a life ban on Modi for alleged financial irregularities while being at the helm of IPL from 2008-2010.
Modi admitted that to some extent he is responsible for Srinivasan's "vices" but made it clear that he will continue his fight. "Yes, to some extent, I am responsible for Srinivasan's vices, but that doesn't mean I will sit back quietly and watch Srinivasan destroy Indian cricket," Modi told 'Times Now'.
"Yes I made mistakes but I created the biggest brand of Indian cricket. "I will bring up issues if he does anything wrong. I have learnt from my mistakes but Srinivasan is just opposite," he said.
The former IPL chief said what bothers him most nowadays is the prospect of Srinivasan getting a one-year extension as BCCI chief at the Board's Annual General Meeting on Sunday.
"I am not disappointed being banned because I am already suspended. I will deal with my suspension at my level. But Srinivasan getting re-elected will be a major disappointment for me and for Indian cricket fans," Modi said. "If Indian cricket is at stake I am ready to take on my ex-colleagues," he added.
