Suspended IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi has sent his reply to the second showcause notice served on him, to the BCCI by e-mail.

“Yes he has sent it last night,” informed Modi’s Legal Counsel Mehmood Abdi today.

Mr. Abdi is scheduled to go to the BCCI headquarters here today to handover the hard copy of the reply which is expected to be just over 24 pages.

The show-cause notice was pertaining to an e-mail sent to the BCCI by England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) Chairman Giles Clarke in which he had alleged that Modi tried to damage the existing structure of international and English cricket.

Mr. Modi yesterday filed defamation notice on Clarke, mentioning that the ECB boss has accused the suspended IPL Chief of seeking to float a rebel league in England, violating International Cricket Council (ICC) regulations.

Mr. Modi was also served a third show-cause notice yesterday by the BCCI over theatrical rights and 150-second commercial slot in between balls during the telecast of IPL-3.

Mr. Modi has already replied to the first show-cause notice served on him with a staggering 15,000-page response.

The first show-cause notice alleged that Mr. Modi had indulged in murky deals and bid-rigging in IPL.
