Modi is an autocrat in cricket: RCA official

April 16, 2010 12:08 IST

Rajasthan Cricket Academy (RCA) secretary Sanjay Dikshit has taken Indian Premier League Commissioner Lalit Modi to task over the Kochi bidding controversy and accused him of separating the IPL from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

"IPL lacks discipline," said Dikshit, adding that Modi took all decisions in his own self-interest.

Further criticizing Modi, Dikshit said: "Modi is an autocrat in cricket."

Pointing fingers at Modi's character, Dikshit said two cases were registered against him in a drugs deal in America, where he had gone for his studies.

"One case was registered on March 1, 1985, while the other was registered on April 2, 1985," said Dikshit.

Meanwhile, IPL Governing Body members have called for a meeting in Dharamsala to discuss the issue.
