Board dismisses Modi's recusal demands
The BCCI disciplinary committee has rejected Lalit Modiís claims that the committee set up to probe IPL corruption is biased against the suspended Indian Premier League commissioner.
Modi; who was suspended by the BCCI in May claimed the interim-IPL chairman Chirayu Amin and BCCI vice-president Arun Jaitley were "biased" against him.
The committee was set up to probe allegations of corruption, money-laundering and the possible links Modi had to a number of franchiseís including the Rajasthan Royals.
"The request of Mr. Lalit Modi for the recusal of certain members of the disciplinary committee is rejected," the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said in a statement.
After over seeing two successful IPL tournaments; Modiís position as the leagues commissioner was put under the microscope after he revealed the ownership details of the new Kochi franchise which will join the tournament in 2011.
