Lalit Modi to file reply to second showcause notice

Published

on

Mumbai: Lalit Modi will on Monday submit his reply to the second showcause notice issued to him by the BCCI which accuses the suspended IPL Commissioner of planning a rebel Twenty20 league in England. “The reply would be filed tomorrow. It would not be as voluminous (as the reply to the first show cause),” Modi’s legal adviser Mehmood Abdi reiterated on Sunday. Modi’s reply to the first showcause served on him soon after the conclusion of IPL’s third edition on April 25 ran up to over 15,000 pages, including a 160-page main reply with supporting documents. Modi responded to the first notice over allegations of murky financial deals in the IPL and bid rigging on May 15. He was served a second showcause by the BCCI on May 6 based on an e-mail sent to the Board by England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) Chairman Giles Clarke. In his e-mail, Clarke leveled serious charges against Modi that the Board found “detrimental to Indian cricket, English cricket and World cricket at large.” The notice referred to Modi’s March 31 meeting in Delhi with representatives of English counties Yorkshire, Lancashire and Warwickshire in which he allegedly talked about a parallel Twenty20 league in England and Wales in which eight existing franchises would bid for nine counties in the UK. “You have allegedly discussed this as a commercial proposition…and also set out that IPL would guarantee each county a minimum of USD three to five million per annum plus a staging fee of USD 1.5 million if the counties supported this idea,” the BCCI notice said. “You have allegedly offered a structured deal, by which the returns would be shared 80:20 between the franchises and the counties, a player model based on the IPL model and offered inducement to gather the rest of the county members to support your ideas and goad them to overpower their own governing bodies,” it said. “You have allegedly planted a seed of thought of players’ revolt if the governing bodies of respective cricket boards do not allow them to participate in this extended version of IPL,” it added. “It challenges not just the authority of BCCI but also (that of) ECB and suggested that IPL would henceforth literally shift to the hands of the franchises and the respective national governing bodies would be forced to watch helplessly while the game and the power of administration are hijacked,” Srinivasan said in the notice. “The volume of the reply depends on the issues raised. I don’t think the reply would be as voluminous (as the first). We will try to satisfy the Board (with the reply),” Abdi told reporters a few days ago when asked whether the second reply would be as staggering as the first one. Modi sought and obtained a 10-day breather to reply to the second show cause notice from the BCCI and the deadline ends on Monday. Incidentally the Board’s marketing committee meeting, chaired by president Shashank Manohar, has also been convened in Mumbai tomorrow to decide on team sponsorship that has boiled down to a two-horse race between Bharati Airtel and Sahara Group. The Board is yet to reply to Modi’s recent 14-page letter to BCCI president Manohar asking both the Board chief and secretary Srinivasan to recuse themselves from any future proceedings against the suspended IPL Commissioner.
