Modi Replies to 2nd Showcause Notice01-Jun-2010 05:00:00 GMT
Mumbai: 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 on Tuesday.
Abdi is scheduled to go to the BCCI headquarters to handover the hard copy of the reply which is expected to be just over 24 pages.
The showcause 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.
Modi on Monday 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.
Modi was also served a third showcause notice on Monday by the BCCI over theatrical rights and 150-second commercial slot in between balls during the telecast of IPL-3.
Modi has already replied to the first showcause notice served on him with a staggering 15,000-page response.
The first showcause notice alleged that Modi had indulged in murky deals and bid-rigging in IPL.
