SC tells BCCI-Modi to negotiate

Zeecric Bureau

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday said that the ongoing legal battle between ex IPL commissioner Lalit Modi and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) over the former’s disciplinary hearing on alleged financial irregularities must end with a compromise between the two after a special hearing.

Lalit Modi’s lawyer Mehmood Abdi on Thursday categorically said that Modi is keen to come to a mutual compromise over the issue. However, the BCCI out and out refuted any negotiations with the estranged IPL ex chief at the moment.

Lalit Modi had moved the Supreme Court seeking the stay on the July 15 Bombay High Court refusal to reconstitute the disciplinary committee of the Indian cricket board.

Modi also sought the stay on further proceedings before the disciplinary committee instituted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

In its verdict, the Bombay High Court dismissed Lalit Modi’s plea seeking re-constitution of the disciplinary committee which, he said, was biased.

The Supreme Court has also instructed the two parties to come to an amicable solution by 27th of this month or it will step-in to sort out the issue.
