"Ban on me as predicted. Like I said not perturbed about it. Rather happy not to be sitting on same table as facilitators of match fixing. Only Time will show I am right. I have no reason to be remorse about this as I got to live and create my dream. Ban not going to stop me," tweeted Modi, after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to ban him for life at its Special General Meeting (SGM) in Chennai for alleged financial irregularities in IPL from 2008-10.
