Game over for Lalit Modi, BCCI suspends him

Updated: April 28, 2010 13:04 IST

Within minutes after the Chennai Super Kings pulled off a surprise win over the Mumbai Indians in IPL final on Sunday, the Board of Control for Cricket India, in a dramatic midnight coup, suspended its vice-president and Indian Premier League chairman and commissioner Lalit Modi for alleged financial impropriety. As planned, the Board waited for the IPL final to be over and within minutes of the prize distribution ceremony at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, it announced Modi's suspension and a show cause notice to him. The BCCI then used Rule 32 of its constitution, which allows the board's president, Shashank Manohar to suspend an official.
