Former Indian Premier League (IPL) Chairman Lalit Modi has been expelled for life by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on charges of financial irregularities on Wednesday.
The decision was taken in a Special General Meeting in Chennai after the Board reviewed a disciplinary committee report. Modi can still, however, challenge the ban in court.
Earlier in the day, the ex-IPL commissioner moved to the Supreme Court for a stay on the meeting. The Special Leave Petition filed by Modi’s lawyers was dismissed. This after the Delhi High Court allowed the BCCI to go ahead with the meeting on Tuesday.
