New Delhi: Jan 17, 2014

 

Former Indian Premier League (IPL) czar Lalit Modi will have to wait a little longer to know the outcome of elections of the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) polls as the Supreme Court, on Friday, adjourned the hearing and directed the listing of the matter to January 27.

 

A bench of Justice Anil R. Dave and Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar, which was to open the envelope that contained the results and the report of Justice N.M. Kasliwal under whose supervision the polls were held, said the court would open it on January 27.

 

As Indian cricket’s apex body, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) urged the apex court to hear it before opening the envelope and declaring the result, the court said it would first see the results and if Modi wins, then before declaring the results, it would hear the BCCI otherwise there would be no need.

 

As the BCCI counsel pressed for the board’s plea to be heard, the court wondered if Modi was so powerful that he would certainly get elected.

 

The court said it would hear all matters on January 27.

 

The RCA election became controversial after Modi joined the race for the post of the president of the state’s cricketing body.

 

The BCCI in September 2013 had imposed a life ban on Modi for alleged irregularities when he headed the IPL from 2008 to 2010.

 

The RCA elections were held December 19, 2013, under the watch of the apex court-appointed former judge, N.M. Kasliwal.
