Modi wants Chirayu Amin out of BCCI Disciplinary panel

In his legal notice to the Cricket Board, Modi has asked for removal of one of the panelists - IPL's interim chairman Chirayu Amin - contending that he cannot be a member as he was one of the investors in the consortium which failed in its bid for buying one of the two new IPL franchises - Pune and Kochi.

Modi has made BCCI president Shashank Manohar, secretary N Srinivasan and the three members of the Disciplinary panel as respondents in his notice.

The other members of the Disciplinary panel are Arun Jaitley and Jyotiraditya Scindia, who was chosen unanimously as a replacement for Manohar, after he recused himself from the panel.

Terming the presence of Amin in the panel "unfortunate", the notice issued on behalf of Modi by his legal counsel said that the suspended IPL chief had disclosed publicly that the T20 League's interim chief was "an investor who formed a part of the Pune consortium that made an unsuccessful bid for the two franchises this year."
