Sharad Pawar the Former Board and ICC president was shocked when BCCI the cheif cricket body of India suspend the Rajasthan Cricket Association after banned IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi was declared as the chief of RCA in Jaipur on Tuesday.

Just hours after Modi was declared the president of the RCA, the BCCI “indefinitely” suspended the state association and appointed an ad-hoc body to run its cricket affairs.

“For the sake of one individual to suspend a whole organisation is really shocking. I hope (BCCI’s interim president) Shivlal Yadav will show some spirit in the organisation and respect the views of the judiciary,” added Pawar, who is on a visit to London this week.

The RCA elections were conducted in December last year but the results were sealed following a Supreme Court directive. After much deliberation, the result was finally announced by a court-appointed observer today.

Modi, on his part, criticised the BCCI for initiating such a hasty step.
