Former Chairman and Commissioner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) took to social media on Saturday to announce his resignment from the Nagaur District Cricket Association in Rajasthan.
Lalit Modi posts his three-page letter on his official Twitter page, addressed to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) CEO Rahul Johri to announce that he is stepping down from all sorts of cricket administration post.
He wrote, “It has been a long journey for me in Indian cricket. The path has been rocky at times, but the destination has always been the pursuit of excellence. Needless to state that over the past 15 years, I have enjoyed every moment of my journey. But I feel that the time is now ripe to pass on the baton to the next generation. Thus, today I want to bid goodbye to cricket administration for now”
He posted as – “Dear Fans of cricket & the lifeline of the game. I want to take this opportunity to thank each & every one of you for making @IPL what it is. I have just decided to hang up my boots and have officially resigned a few minutes ago from all positions I held at various cricket bodies. once again hope you all continue to support this amazing game. big hug and once again thank you for helping me realize my #dream. Jai Hind – Lalit Modi.
Back in 2010 BCCI suspended Modi on the basis of 22 charges against him, which resulted in him shifting to London and fighting the charges from there. Finally, in 2013, he was found guilty and was thus expelled from the Board.
