The Board of Control for Cricket in India has expelled Lalit Modi, former Commissioner, Indian Premier League, for life from the BCCI.

A special general meeting of the board took the decision today, acting on a disciplinary committee report.

According to a BCCI statement, the members unanimously resolved to expel Modi for “committing acts of serious misconduct and indiscipline.”

He forfeits his rights and privileges as administrator and in future will not be allowed to associate in any way with the BCCI.

Modi, along with the BCCI, the apex body regulating cricket, was responsible for forming the IPL twenty20 cricket league. In 2010, after the third edition of the series, he was suspended from the BCCI on allegations of financial irregularities and issues relating to the introduction of two new IPL teams.

A disciplinary committee of the BCCI submitted its report on the charges based on which Modi was expelled.

The BCCI meeting took place after the Delhi High Court set aside a trial court order of September 21 staying the meeting following a petition from Modi.

The High Court, however, said the BCCI’s decision will be subject to the trial court’s decision on the suit pending before it.

Modi also approached the Supreme Court in a bid to stop the BCCI from holding Special General Meeting.
