Chennai: Dec 27, 2013

 

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) top brass will assemble on Saturday for an Emergent Working Committee meeting to discuss the possible implications of banned former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi‘s re-entry into Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA).

 

All the representatives of BCCI affiliated units are expected to attend the meeting where members may decide the fate of Modi and also discuss the legal implications of banning RCA.

 

Modi, who got permission from the Supreme Court to fight the recent elections, is likely to get back his Rajasthan Cricket Association president’s post back.

 

BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel said that the Cricket Board was not against the Rajasthan cricketers but against Modi.

 

“Let me tell you that BCCI will never act in a manner which is against the interest of cricket or cricketers. I can assure you that whatever decision we take, will not hurt the interest of the cricketers of Rajasthan,” Patel told PTI ahead of the meeting.

 

“We are also concerned about their future but the issue of Modi trying to make a comeback will certainly be discussed at length at Saturday’s meeting,” Patel said.

 

However Patel did not specify as to what kind of actions the board is mulling against Modi, who was handed a life ban for alleged misappropriation of funds during the first three seasons of the cash-rich IPL.

 

“Look, we need to discuss and hear the views of each and every member of the working committee before taking a decision. The decision to ban Modi was an unanimous one and now we need to discuss a whole lot of issues regarding him,” Patel added.

 

The BCCI secretary, who recently won his state association’s [Baroda] election against former India wicketkeeper Kiran More, also reiterated that the Cricket Board was ready for all legal battles which would be inevitable in case Modi is declared a winner in RCA polls and wanted to come into BCCI.

 

“It will be hypothetical to say that Mr Modi will win the elections. Let him first win the elections. If you are speaking about the legal recourse that will be taken by Mr Modi, I can assure you that BCCI is ready for the challenge.  Since inception, BCCI had faced a lot of legal battles and we are ready for this one also,” he said.

 

While it is a foregone conclusion that most of the members will agree to Modi being debarred from entering the BCCI, the IPL matches of Rajasthan Royals and the ODIs that are allotted to Sawai Man Singh Stadium will also come up for discussion.
