Not a tweet from deposed Modi

Blogging for the Times, Patrick Kidd wonders if Lalit Modi is the first sports administrator to be sacked for shooting his mouth off by text message.

Last year, Ravi Shastri likened Modi to Moses. This hyperbolic beatification was mocked at the time, but perhaps it seems more relevant today. Despite common belief, Moses did not lead the Hebrews all the way to the Promised Land. He merely led them out of their Egyptian (50-over) bondage, but he died before they completed their route across the wilderness.
