Brijesh Patel will head a five-member BCCI panel to run Rajasthan Cricket Association. RCA had elected Lalit Modi as its president but the BCCI has refused to accept the former IPL Commissioner.

Just hours after Lalit Modi was announced as the RCA president in May 2014, the BCCI suspended the board indefinitely and appointed an ad-hoc body to run its cricket affairs.

The tug-of-war between the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi continued as the BCCI is set to appoint a five-member committee to run the Rajasthan Cricket Association.

The committee will oversee all cricket activities in associations like Bihar and Rajasthan where there are ongoing disputes.

According a report in ESPNCricinfo, BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel confirmed that the interim president of the board, Shivlal Yadav has appointed the committee in order to provide the best of cricketing facilities in disputed areas.

Earlier this year, Lalit Modi was formally declared as the president of Rajasthan Cricket Association after winning the elections that he had contested for in December 2013. The move was expected to trigger as series of legal battles.

Just hours after Modi was announced as the RCA president, the BCCI suspended the board indefinitely and appointed an ad-hoc body to run its cricket affairs.

The RCA may take legal recourse regarding the reported move by the BCCI to form an ad-hoc committee to run the affairs of the state body.
