LALIT MODI RESIGNS FROM RCA

New Delhi: Lalit Modi on Saturday resigned as President of the Nagaur District Association, marking an end to his presence in the Rajasthan Cricket body, which was banned by the BCCI for allowing the tainted administrator in its fold. The 50-year-old Modi, who left India after being charged with money laundering, sent is resignation to both the RCA as well as BCCI CEO Rahul Johri. "...I feel that the time is now ripe to pass on the baton to the next generation. Thus, today I want to bid goodbye to cricket administration for now," Modi wrote in his resignation letter. Modi, credited for creating the cash-rich and glitzy Indian Premier League in 2008, was expelled from the BCCI in 2010, which accused him of rigging bids and money laundering among other charges.

INDIAN 4X400M RELAY TEAM DISAPPOINT

London: Asian champion Indian women's 4x400m relay team was disqualified for lane infringement while the men counterpart finished 10th to crash out of the World Athletics Championships, as the country's disappointing show continued on the penultimate day of competitions here on Saturday. The women's quartet of Jisna Mathew, M R Poovamma, Anilda Thomas and N Sheoran clocked 3 minute and 28.62 seconds to finish seventh in the first heat of the women's 4x400m relay round one but the team was disqualified later for lane infringement under Rule 163.3(a) of the IAAF Competition Rules. It was learnt that Jisna, who ran the first lap, committed lane infringement coming out of the second bend. She ran in the other lane after 250m. Had the Indian team not disqualified, the timing it clocked would have been the season's best. Had the Indian team not disqualified, the timing it clocked would have been the season's best, better than Asian Championships gold-winning time of 3:31.34.
