Within two hours of the former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi being declared president-elect of the Rajasthan Cricket Association, the BCCI suspended the RCA, appointing an ad-hoc body to administer its day-to-day affairs.

While elections to the RCA were held in December last, the ballots were sealed and results declared only on Tuesday.

Mr. Modi won by a big margin, getting 24 out of the 33 votes polled. His nearest rival, Rampal Sharma — a confidant of the former RCA president C.P. Joshi — got five votes, while four were declared invalid.
