A day after his petition to reconstitute the Cricket Board's Disciplinary Committee set up to hear charges against him was rejected by the Bombay High Court, suspended Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi raised the issue with the panel members in Mumbai on Friday.

Modi, represented at the first meeting of the BCCI's three-member committee by his legal counsel Mehmood Abdi as he is abroad, raised the issue of recusal with the committee members.

"We had a cordial meeting and the issue of recusal was put forth. The members said it would be considered," Abdi told reporters after the meeting.

Abdi also said that the next hearing by the committee would be held on July 27 at Delhi but refused to divulge any more details of what transpired today.

"We have come to a mutual understanding not to divulge details of the disciplinary commitee meetings with the media. The BCCI would put up the minutes of the meeting on their website," he said.

Modi has demanded removal of two members of the committee - IPL's interim chairman Chirayu Amin and Arun Jaitley - as he fears they would be biased against him during the disciplinary proceedings. The third member is Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia.
