Tuesday 06 May 2014

The founder of the Indian Premier League and its former Chairman and Commissioner, Lalit Modi has made a comeback into cricket administration after he was on Tuesday elected as the President of Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA). The results of the December 19 RCA election were declared by a court observer in Jaipur. 

The Supreme Court had on May 1 directed the court appointed commissioner to announce the controversial RCA election results, pending since December, on May 6.

Brushing aside the BCCI’s submission that if Lalit Modi, is elected, the state body’s disqualification process would begin, a bench headed by Justice AR Dave verbally told the Board of Control for Cricket in India's counsel, senior advocate CA Sundaram, that it was at liberty to take action under its rules.

The court directed the SC registry to send the results, filed in a sealed envelope before it, back to the observer, justice (retd) NM Kasliwal, to declare the result. It said anyone aggrieved about the outcome can challenge it before an appropriate authority.

The SC had on November 20, 2013 made justice Kasliwal principal observer to oversee the elections and he accepted Modi’s nomination. The elections were held on December 19.

Modi was the RCA President from 2005 to 2009.
