The former IPL chairman also indicated that if current president in exile N Srinivasan gets a clean chit from the Mudgal committee, it will effectively bring down curtains on his career as a cricket administrator.
     
"As far as my knowledge goes, the BCCI AGM will be postponed till the Mudgal Committee report is out. I believe the system needs to be cleaned up and no heaven will fall if the AGM is delayed by three months. As of now, without doubt, I don't see myself playing any role in the BCCI elections," Modi said.
     
"Let me tell you, if the Mudgal report does not go against Srini, it will be extremely difficult for me to make a comeback. In that case, I will rest my case and hang up my boots. I will give up cricket administration," Modi said.
     
Asked about when will he come back to India, Modi said that it will depend on what kind of feedback he gets from the competent authorities regarding the security of him and his family.
     
"First my friends and the police have to confirm that there is no threat from the underworld to me and my family. I will be on the next flight back in India," said Modi.
     
Modi also said that not many people know that he "has won cases against the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and there are no outstanding charges" against him.
     
Modi also agreed that a "change of government" has also played a major role in thinking about coming back to India.
     
Asked if he still has wherewithal to take on Srinivasan, Modi said," The same question was asked when we fought the election against Dalmiya back in 2004. But in 2005, we had a big victory. There are lots of good people in BCCI and I have a lot of friends. It's just that there are a few rotten apples."
