As a result of his infection with Covid, the former head of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Lalit Modi, disclosed in an Instagram post that he is currently using “24/7 external oxygen.”
He was diagnosed with “influenza and severe pneumonia” and was brought to the hospital for treatment.
“After 3 weeks in confinement with a double COVID in 2 weeks accompanied by influenza and deep pneumonia – and post trying multiple times to leave,” Lalit Modi said in an Instagram post. “After 3 weeks in confinement with a double COVID in 2 weeks accompanied by influenza and deep pneumonia.”
“Finally made it to the ground in an air ambulance with two doctors and my son, who is a rockstar and is extremely efficient. He helped me with a lot when I was in London.
The flight went off without a hitch. Unfortunately, we are still dependent on exogenous oxygen 24 hours a day. I would like to thank everyone at @vistajet for going above and beyond. I have the deepest appreciation for everyone. Love to all. Big hug.”
In the midst of allegations of tax cheating, money laundering, and proxy ownership, Modi fled India in 2010 and has been establishing a base in London for the past few years.
As a result of charges of financial impropriety, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) initially banned Modi from the sport in 2010, and then in 2013, they banned him for life. It is common practise to give Modi credit for being the originator of the lucrative Indian Premier League.
Earlier, Lalit Modi gave an interview to NDTV, and during that discussion, he stated that the IPL is recession proof. “The audience is currently at what is most likely the highest level it has ever been at anywhere in the world, both in terms of the amount of people watching and the number of eye balls being attracted to the game.
I have never wavered from my stance, despite the fact that everyone has teased me about it, that IPL is immune to economic downturns. In what concerns India, it appears more and more likely that will not be affected by the current economic downturn.
There are constantly fresh fan bases emerging to support us, and they are joining in. However, going forward, we need to exercise extreme caution.
The price of digital rights has skyrocketed due to the fact that most people in the younger age group are now using digital media; however, consumers in India have reported that their experience has not been particularly satisfying when it comes to watching content on a specific platform “Modi told NDTV.
