New Delhi, Jan 09 Former Indian cricket team fast bowler Praveen Kumar revealed that Royal Challengers Bangalore was not his first choice in the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and how his reluctance to join the franchise earned him an extreme reaction from LalitModi. During an interaction with Lallantop, Praveen explained that he wanted to join Delhi Daredevils because it was close to his hometown of Meerut but he signed a paper from an RCB official which turned out to be a contract. When Praveen approached Lalit to tell him about his choice, the IPL commissioner threatened to end his career.

I told them I wanted to play for Delhi and not Bangalore. LalitModi called me and threatened to end my career," Praveen said in the interview.
