Cricket board has given suspended Indian Premier League boss Lalit Modi more time to reply to allegations of corruption against him dating back to the inaugural IPL season in 2008.
Ratnakar Shetty, a senior cricket board official, said on Tuesday the Board Of Control For Cricket in India has agreed to Modi's request for an extension of the original Monday deadline. Modi now has five more days to reply to the notice, Shetty said. Modi was suspended as the IPL chief nearly two weeks ago. Modi is being investigated over the bids for two teams in the original 2008 IPL auctions, a broadcast deal, bid rigging of two new clubs last month and his own behavior, the BCCI said.
