New Delhi: Former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi is set to be banned by the BCCI on charges of financial irregularities in its Special General Meeting (SGM) on September 25.
According to a news channel, a report submitted by the cricket board’s disciplinary committee alleges Modi of rigging bids to favour two companies to buy new IPL franchisees, rigging league’s internet and broadcast rights and attempting to form a rebel league among others.
The committee has recommended a life ban on Modi who ran the lucrative tournament for the first three years before being suspended and subsequently moving to London claiming danger to his life in India.
For the ban to be imposed, a two-third majority needs vote in its favour meaning at least 21 members will have to support the decision at the SGM.
