New Delhi: Ex-IPL chief Lalit Modi has reportedly been banned from holding any position in the Indian Cricket administration.

The decision to expel Modi was taken on Wednesday at the BCCI SGM in a matter of minutes.

Modi has been found guilty on all 8 counts levelled against him in the 133-pages report submitted by the 3-member disciplinary panel of the BCCI.

Modi was the IPL Chairman-cum-Commissioner during the first three editions of the tournament but was suspended immediately after the closing ceremony in 2010 on charges of financial irregularities in running the league as well as improper practices during the auction of two new teams before the third edition.

During the suspension, a three-member disciplinary committee, comprising Scindia and Jaitley along with president Srinivasan, was formed. But Srinivasan recused himself and the erstwhile IPL chairman Chirayu Amin was made a member.

Subsequently, Amin also recused himself and it became a two-member committee.

Earlier, the Supreme Court dismissed Lalit Modi’s plea to stall the BCCI meet.
