Lalit Modi vs Everybody
Powerful lobbies tried to evict him from the Indian cricket board, but he’s hung on. And he lost twice in the RCA polls. But a major success was when he refused to postpone the IPL—which was clashing with the general elections—achieving the logistical miracle of transporting the IPL to SA.

Former Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah garlands Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar after the latter's election to the post of president of the Board of Cricket for Control in India in Kolkata. And after the elections, the fireworks have already started. First came the change in the selection committee, with the three selectors who had voted for inclusion of Saurav Ganguly into the test team being replaced. One of the ousted selectors has already charged coach Greg Chappell with being abusive and having - apart from Ganguly - Sehwag, Harbhajan and Zaheer on his 'hit list'.
