Chennai: Former BCCI vice-president Rajiv Shukla on Wednesday said that the decision to slap ex IPL chairman Lalit Modi with a life ban was a "unanimous" decision and there was no ambiguity in the verdict by the cricket board.

"It was a unanimous decision. It was first moved by Anirudh Chaudhary of Haryana and seconded by Ranjib Biswal of Orissa. Everybody today attended the meeting and voted in favour. There was not a single dissent vote," Shukla said. (The rise and fall of Lalit Modi)
