Lawyers of Lalit Modi have appealed to the Supreme Court to stay the BCCI special general meeting that is expected to expel the former IPL chairman for financial irregularities. The hearing is expected soon as the BCCI meeting is scheduled to start in Chennai at 2 pm.
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday, had vacated the stay order issued by a trial court barring the BCCI from holding its SGM in Chennai. It is learnt that the BCCI will go ahead with Wednesday's meeting but may not announce its decision.
Modi had previously challenged the validity of the SGM after he was issued a notice by BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel for alleged financial irregularities as IPL chairman between 2008 and 2010. (Also read: Won't let Srinivasan ruin Indian cricket, says Lalit Modi)
