New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India is expected to hear BCCI's petition against Lalit Modi seeking to stop the former IPL chief from taking over as president of the Rajasthan Cricket Association.


The Supreme court is also expected to declare the results of the RCA elections that took place on December 19.

In spite of warnings from BCCI, the Rajasthan Cricket Association permitted Modi to contest for the post of the panel's president. The elections were held with court appointed observers watching over the proceedings.

The Modi section is certain of sweeping the polls with a huge margin, though the BCCI, in a last-ditch effort, filed the petition that pleads that his association with RCA, will taint the image of Indian cricket.

In September 2013, a life-ban was imposed on Lalit Modi by BCCI for financial irregularities when he was the IPL commissioner.

However, Modi was permitted to contest as RCA election does not come under BCCI guidelines.
