Amidst controversies, Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi is likely to quit after the final of the Twenty20 extravaganza, said BCCI sources on Tuesday.

The sources said the cricket board members are miffed with Lalit Modi and the controversies surrounding him. The sources also added that the board members consider the present controversy as the biggest the BCCI has ever faced.

Meanwhile, BCCI president Shashank Manohar flew into the capital on Tuesday to hold discussions with former cricket board chief Sharad Pawar. A close aide of Manohar confirmed that the BCCI chief will meet Pawar and some other board officials during his stay.

Manohar's visit comes amid reports that the top brass of BCCI are planning to remove the controversial Modi from the post of IPL commissioner and chairman. The meeting also assumes significance as Pawar is said to be backing Modi.

The cricket board has also rescheduled its Working Committee meeting from April 24 to May 2 as it wants the IPL Governing Council -- which is expected to meet on April 26, a day after the IPL final -- to first discuss the issue.

The BCCI top officials are said to be extremely unhappy with Modi after he triggered the controversy by tweeting the Kochi franchise's stakeholding pattern, which also brought the cricket board under the Income Tax department's scanner.

Modi himself is under fire for allegedly helping his family and friends buy stakes in various IPL teams.

His tweets about Kochi's shareholding created a political storm as it emerged that minister of state for external affair Shashi Tharoor's close friend Sunanda Pushkar had a sweat equity worth Rs 700 million. Tharoor had to resign, while Pushkar also gave up her stake in Kochi franchise.
