Suspended IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi is all set to submit by Tuesday, his reply to the third show cause notice that BCCI slapped on him for alleged irregularities in the awarding of Twenty20 League's theatrical rights, his legal adviser said today.
"The reply to the third notice is actively under way. We have got time till the 15th (of June) to submit it," Modi's counsel Mehmood Abdi told PTI.
Modi was served the third show cause notice, which also raised questions over the awarding of the 150-second commercial slot in between balls during IPL 3, by BCCI on May 31.
He has already replied to two earlier notices slapped on him by the Board accusing him of financial irregularities, manipulating the bidding for new franchises and trying to destroy the structure of world and Indian cricket. The first reply ran over 15000 pages, including a staggering number of supporting documents, while the second one was a 24-page response.
Modi asked for and was granted 15 days' grace period to file replies on the first two occasions but has not asked for another extension to file the reply to the third notice.
Meanwhile, the BCCI has convened a meeting with all 10 IPL franchise representatives on June 24 followed by the League's Governing Council meeting the next day. The controversy surrounding Modi and his suspension are expected to figure in these meetings.
