Modi Replies to Third BCCI Showcause Notice

Mumbai, Jun 17 (IANS): Suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi has submitted his reply to the third showcause notice by the Indian cricket board on the alleged irregularities in the cash-rich League.

Modi was charged by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) with irregularities in the sale of cinema rights and mid-over ads for this year's third edition of the IPL.

Modi's lawyer, Mehmood Abdi, said Wednesday that the reply was e-mailed to the board Tuesday and it was submitted to the board's headquarters Wednesday.

"It's a matter of routine internal procedure and record. A mountain has been made out of a molehill," Abdi told reporters.

Modi has already replied to separate BCCI charges of financial irregularities and independent functioning and another charge of trying to set up a rebel Twenty20 league in England.

A three-member panel comprising BCCI president Shashank Manohar, board vice president Arun Jaitley and interim IPL chairman Chirayu Amin, will go through the reply.

The panel will recommend to the general body whether Modi should be reinstated or not.

Modi has levelled counter charges against Manohar and BCCI secretary N.Srinivasan and has insisted that they should not be a part of the panel.
