BCCI expel Modi

India

Former Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi was expelled from the Board of Control for Cricket in India on Wednesday.

Former Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi was expelled from the Board of Control for Cricket in India on Wednesday.

The unanimous decision was made during a special general meeting, following a series of legal proceedings this month, as Modi tried to stay the SGM.

"The BCCI resolved that Mr Lalit Modi is guilty of committing acts of serious misconduct and indiscipline, and therefore he is hereby expelled from the board," BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel said in a statement.

"He shall forfeit all his rights and privileges as administrator. He shall not in future be entitled to hold any position or office, or be admitted in any committee or any member or associate member of the BCCI."

Modi was found guilty of rigging bids during the franchise auction in 2010, selling media and internet rights without authorisation and secretly trying to create a rebel T20 league in England without the knowledge of the Indian and England boards.
