Modi was elected RCA boss five months back.

Jaipur: Controversial former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi was Saturday unceremoniously ousted from the president's post of the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) with a rebel group led by local BJP leader Amin Pathan taking over the reins.

On a day of hectic developments, Pathan was elected as the Acting President by the majority of the members in an extraordinary general body meeting, bringing a dramatic end to Modi's tenure almost five months after he was elected to the top post.

It is learnt that 23 out of the 33 district cricket associations of RCA supported the move to remove Modi, who has been banned for life by the BCCI but came back as the chief of state association with an overwhelming majority in May this year.
