Lalit Modi Resigns From Nagaur Cricket Association, Says, 'Goodbye To Cricket'”

Modi, 53, handed over his three-page resignation to BCCI Chief Executive Officer Rahul Johri saying that he has done his part of improving Rajasthan cricket, and now it is BCCI's turn to honour their part of the promise and release the funds due to Rajasthan Cricket Association as soon as possible."Goodbye to cricket administration for now and requested the BCCI to pay back the Rajasthan Cricket Association its rightful share of funds held back for long", the letter reads. "Thus, today I want to bid goodbye to cricket administration for now", Modi wrote in his resignation letter.

For the past 3 years, Rajasthan has been barred from hosting a single ICC or an IPL match.

He, however, refused to let go of his position in the RCA, prompting the BCCI to altogether ban the association.

Modi's exit will open new doors for RCA, although his son Ruchir Modi continues to stay in the Rajasthan cricket circle, the 23-year-old entrepreneur now holds the position of the President of Alwar Cricket Association.

"I honestly believe a system is more important than any individual". BCCI had since then suspended the 50-year-old on the basis of 22 charges against Modi which resulted in him shifting to London and fighting the charges from there. "Dear Fans of cricket & the lifeline of the game". I repose my faith in you and the BCCI to do the right thing!

"When I look back at all this work at a macro and a micro level, I believe it is truly time to move on and provide the next generation of administrators an opportunity. With my exit from all forms of cricket, at all levels, forever, I think RCA deserves to reclaim their share and presence on the Indian cricket map", he added. He was the president of the cricket body.

"I wonder why the same standards are not applied to some like Mr N. Srinivasan".

Modi said Srinivasan seemed like an "exception to the rule or may be the rule himself".

"Speaking about the success of the IPL, Modi said: ".the successful conduct of the 10th edition of IPL earlier this year made me the happiest man in the whole wide world as it helped the BCCI achieve what we had set out to make, not to mention the unheard-of sponsorship value under your astute leadership bring another stark reflection on the potential value of Indian cricket".
