A day after Lalit Modi got his passport back and the permit to return to India, the former Indian Premier League commissioner told NDTV on Thursday that he would continue to fight the wrongs in Indian cricket but that he was not interested in becoming the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Modi, a former vice-president of the BCCI, was banned for life by the Indian cricket Board in September 2013 - three years after the regional passport office in Mumbai had revoked his passport. On Wednesday though, a division bench of Delhi High Court restored the passport, paving the way for Modi's return to the country and seeking a possible re-entry into cricket administration. "It has been a long, hard battle but I stand vindicated and will continue to fight the good fight," he said, adding that becoming the chief of BCCI was not his objective. "Do I want to be the BCCI president under the current cloud? Out of the question."
