New Delhi:

Former BCCI Chief Sharad Pawar has called Lalit Modi for a meeting here amid intense speculation that the embattled IPL Commissioner may step down from his post after the event ends on April 25.

Modi, who has returned to Mumbai after attending the ICC's Executive Board meeting in Dubai on behalf of BCCI President Shashank Manohar, is expected to meet Pawar later in the day.

Though no BCCI official was willing to confirm the development, a BCCI source said that Pawar would meet Modi to take stock of the situation in the wake of the raging IPL controversy.

Pawar had a one-on-one meeting with BCCI Chief Manohar and senior member Arun Jaitley during the day.

Manohar's visit comes amid reports that the top brass of BCCI are planning to remove controversial Modi from the post of IPL Commissioner and Chairman. The meeting also assumes significance as Pawar is said to be close to Modi.
