New Delhi: BCCI on Thursday faced the Supreme Court’s wrath for its ‘defiant attitude’ in implementing the directions of the Justice R M Lodha committee and later on, it was the time for former IPL chairman Lalit Modi to train his guns at the BCCI top brass.
Not known to mince his words, Modi targeted the likes of Anurag Thakur and Rajiv Shukla through a series of tweets going as far as calling the current IPL chairman Shukla a ‘dalal’ and BCCI president Thakur the ‘original fixer’.
Modi was banned by the BCCI for life in 2013 after a committee found him guilty on charges of misconduct, indiscipline and financial irregularities in 2010.
In his tweets Modi said that the system (in BCCI) no different than before and the only way out is to do a total cleanup as suggested by the Lodha Committee.
He also questioned Thakur’s credentials as a serious cricketer after BCCI had defended its President’s qualification to be an office bearer of the cash-rich body yesterday. Modi went on to remark that Thakur forced himself in to the Himchal Pradesh Ranji team as his father was the Chief Minister at that time.
Modi, president of the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) had recently met the state body’s officials in Dubai where a decision was taken to completely accept the resolutions of the Justice Lodha Panel for state associations.
