Lalit Modi has to wait till January 6 to know his fate in Rajasthan cricket polls

Banned for life by BCCI, Lalit Modi qualified as a candidate because the RCA elections were governed by the Rajasthan Sports Act 2005. His group claims to enjoy support from 25 units of the 33 districts but the results will only be announced by the Supreme Court on January 6 after the sealed ballot box is opened in Delhi.

Jaipur: The Lalit Modi faction remains confident of a thumping victory in the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) elections which were held on Thursday but they will have to wait till January 6 for the results.

The high-voltage polls, which have become a thorn in the flesh of BCCI because of Modi who contested for the post of RCA president, were held under the Supreme Court appointed principal observer Justice NM Kasliwal, who as per the directives of Supreme Court, sealed the ballot boxes and will send it to the apex court with his full report.

"The observer would send the results to the apex court with his reports and it would decide the further course of action on January 6th, when the matter comes up for next hearing," said Abhinav Sharma, the lawyer of RCA.
