Lalit Modi out of IPL?

Indian Premier LeagueImage via Wikipedia
Sunday was enlivened by news reports that a faction (powerful is how reports describe them) in the BCCI are getting ready to oust Lalit Modi from his IPL post.

Apparently, his failure to win the Presidency of the Rajasthan Cricket Club and his recent meeting with Jagmohan Dalmiya has emboldened his detractors in the BCCI.

Instead of directly gunning for Lalit Modi, his detractors are questioning the need for a Commissioner for IPL. They argue that as IPL is a BCCI event, the President of the BCCI is the de facto head of IPL.

This is indeed a clever gambit by Lalit Modi’s detractors, for even if they fail, the President of the BCCI, will be henceforth favorably disposed towards them.

As for the man, Lalit Modi, he is his irrepressible self. He has “pooh-poohs” these reports and claimed these were “planted stories”.

Despite denials from him and from some senior BCCI officials, one senses an impending storm.
