The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has issued a short statement confirming that its Chairman Giles Clarke and former Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi will settle a legal dispute out of court.

Modi pursued libel claims against Clarke in 2010 after the contents of an email to the President of the Indian cricket board (BCCI) were reported in the media.

The statement from the ECB revealed:

"In May 2010 Giles Clarke CBE, 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."

Modi lost a libel case brought against him by former New Zealand international Chris Cairns earlier this year.
