Suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Lalit Modi said his reply to the Indian cricket board's show-cause notice is not to defend himself but the image of the highly-successful Twenty20 cricket league.

Modi tweeted from Monaco, where he is supporting Force India in the Formula One race.

"My reply is not about defending Lalit Modi it's about defending Brand IPL," Modi wrote on social networking site Twitter.

Modi's reply to the showcause notice of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has run into 15,000 pages and he is believed to have put IPL's entire Governing Council (GC) in the dock Saturday.

Modi's reply was collated by three highly reputed companies of solicitors and a battery of lawyers headed by legal luminaries like Ram Jethmalani and Harish Salve. It was submitted to the board by Modi's lawyer Mehmood Abdi.
