The Lalit Modi-led part of the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) on Monday reportedly filed an application at the High Court, against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) formed ad-hoc committee to ensure the state’s participation in domestic tournaments but the move may lead to more legal tangles. Rajendra Singh Nandu, the secretary of the Nagaur District Cricket Association (which has Lalit Modi as president), told PTI that the BCCI’s decision to form an ad-hoc body in RCA is akin to contempt of court. Under the provisions of Sports Act the sole right to form and ad-hoc body in a state association is with the Registrar of the Cooperative Society and perhaps because of this fact, BCCI had dropped the idea in the previous season despite going through the exercise.
