IPL 5 inauguration was appalling: Modi

New Delhi, Apr 4: Former IPL chairman Lalit Modi, feels that the opening ceremony of the fifth edition of Indian Premier League might have impressed most of the viewers, but he was not impressed as he has expressed his disappointment on a social networking site Twitter.

As Bollywood personalities entertained the Chennai crowd during the opening ceremony on Tuesday night, Lalit Modi, was actively posting comments on Twitter expressing his displeasure and felt was mis-management on part of the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

"Can't bear to watch it anymore - as on Tv it looks appalling. Was really looking forward to seeing something well presented. I am sure the Ratings will show," he wrote on the micro-blogging site.

He also felt that the BCCI could have organised the event in a better manner in a stadium instead of YMCA grounds.

"I would have preferred Opening Ceremony to be in A Stadium atmosphere, before a game. Rather than like a Concert like opening. The truth is I am in complete Shock - that a show like this can be staged. What was the Bcci thinking when they decided on this format," he further tweeted in two separate posts.

Former chairman of IPL, who lost a court case against Chris Cairns, is reportedly planning to challenge the judgement after beign sacked on charges of financial irregularities. Modi, instead of watching the opening ceremony, preferred to meet a friend which eventually showed how the opening ceremony failed to impress the former IPL Chairman.
