Modi elected president of Nagaur Cricket Body
Thursday 14 August 2014

Defying the BCCI yet again,  Lalit Modi was elected president of the Nagaur District Cricket Association for the fourth consecutive term.

In the elections held at Nagaur, Modi, who is also the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) president, was elected chief of the district body which is one of the 33 units affiliated of RCA. His close aid and RCA secretary, Rajendra Singh Nandu, was elected as secretary.

It can be recalled that it was the post in the Nagaur District executive that had made Modi eligible in accord with the Sports Act 2005 to fight RCA election, which saw the end of the Rungta era in state cricket.

The BCCI had warned RCA of dire consequences if Modi was allowed to take any post in RCA or any of its affiliated units. But riding the Sports Act prevailing in state, RCA not only allowed Modi to become president in December but once again defied BCCI to allow him to be elected Nagaur body's boss.

The move might see BCCI red faced as it is trying to take control of cricketing activities in state by forming a Special Cricketing Committee against stiff opposition from RCA.

Office-bearers of Nagaur District Cricket Association: President - Lalit Modi, Vice President - Bhawani Singh, Hon. Secretary - Rajendra Singh Nandu, Treasurer - Shiv Shankar Vyas, Hon. Joint Secretary - Nasruddin Ansari, Executive members - Ashok Kumar and Abhinanyu Singh.
