Lalit Modi accused of misusing power
Former Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi has been found guilty by the Board of Control for Cricket in India's disciplinary committee for misusing his power during his controversial tenure as head of the richest T20 cricket league.
According to NDTV, the 133-page report submitted by the committee was circulated among BCCI members on Tuesday and will be discussed at the BCCI’s special general meeting in Chennai on September 25. There’s a good chance of Modi being banned for life.
Modi was sacked on the eve of the 2010 IPL final. The Board was headed by Shashank Manohar at the time. Apart from being involved in financial irregularities, Modi has been accused of forming a rebel league.
Fearing a life threat, Modi now lives in London. Twenty-one votes will be needed to ban Modi for life. Modi has regularly targeted current president N Srinivasan on Twitter where he has pointed out how conflict of interest is the bane of Indian cricket.
