Lalit Modi, the former IPL commissioner, has settled his libel case with Giles Clarke out of court. The case centred on an email Clarke sent to the BCCI in 2010 claiming attempts were being made to set up a rebel Twenty20 league in England.
Clarke was responding after representatives of several England first-class counties met with Modi and IMG, a sports-marketing company, in Mumbai as they sought a fresh approach to the marketing of T20 cricket in England.
Changes discussed involved a potential reduction in the number of sides contesting England's domestic T20 competition and were interpreted by Clarke as rebellious and outside their jurisdiction.
An ECB statement said: "In May 2010 Giles Clarke, chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board, sent an email to the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the contents of which were subsequently widely reported in the British and international media which resulted in libel proceedings being issued by Lalit Modi.
"This statement confirms that the parties have agreed to settle the litigation on confidential terms."
In February this year Clarke had also settled out-of-court with IMG over the same issue.
