Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

BCCI appoints 3-member team to oversee IPL functioningMumbai (ANI): The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday appointed a three-member committee to oversee the functioning of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The members of the committee are former cricketers Sunil Gavaskar, Ravi Shastri and Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.

BCCI President Shashank Manohar on Monday said the Board was unhappy with former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi's explanation and would probe the missing IPL-3 bidding files.

"BCCI looked into charges against Modi. We are not happy with Modi's explanation," said Manohar.

Manohar, however, said that Modi would be given a chance if his reply was satisfactory.

"If Modi's reply is satisfactory, we may reconsider him," said Manohar.

"Modi will have to reply to the show cause, we will wait till his reply," he added.

The BCCI President further said the documents related to IPL team Rajasthan Royals are missing.

"In the available document of Rajasthan Royals, there is no mention of Raj Kundra or Shilpa Shetty," he added.

After the two -hour long IPL Governing Council meeting that took place at the BCCI headquarters here to find out the irregularities with regard to the bidding and the role of Lalit Modi in the entire episode, it was announced that BCCI Vice President and IPL Governing Council member Chirayu Amin would be the new interim IPL Commissioner.

Amin is the currently the President of the Baroda Cricket Association. He is also the BCCI Vice-President and IPL Governing Council member.

The BCCI has reportedly said that it will go public with all charges filed against Modi.
