The Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) units were together on one platform on Thursday as 31 districts, comprising two proxies, cast their votes at the RCA Cricket Academy according to the Rajasthan high court direction.

The votes were cast under the supervision of retired justice Sunil Garg.

All districts officials showed unity and cast their votes against former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi. Alwar district cricket association secretary, Pawan Kumar Goyal, Dungarpur cricket association secretary and MP Harshvardan Singh were unable to come and had to send their proxy.

Although observer Sunil Garg, accepted the proxies, they will not be counted in the vote.

Last December, the BCCI at its SGM had decided that it would give the suspended state cricket association relief if it complied with the apex body’s terms, which included not allowing disgraced former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi to return in the state fold.

The conditions also included that if Modi tried to re- enter the state unit in future, then BCCI will over turn the revocation of the ban.

The decision could well mean that Rajasthan Royals may stay back and play their IPL games at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium.
