Lalit Modi, the suspended IPL chairman, will be submitting his reply to the second show cause notice issued to him by the BCCI on Monday.
Modi's counsel, Mehmood Abdi, confirmed that the reply, the deadline for which was extended by 10 days on Modi’s request, would be submitted on Monday.
The reply is likely to be submitted after the BCCI's marketing committee meeting.
Modi, who replied to the first show-cause notice on May 15, was issued a second notice on May 6 following a complaint by England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chairman, Giles Clarke.
In an email to BCCI president, Shashank Manohar, Clarke had alleged that Modi was trying to form an IPL-like parallel tournament in England without keeping the BCCI or ECB in the loop.
With Manohar and BCCI secretary, N Srinivasan, in the city along with ICC president-elect, Sharad Pawar, the reply to Modi's recent request of recusal is also likely to be discussed.
Meanwhile, the day will start with the marketing committee zeroing in on a sponsor for the India team for the next three years.
It is learnt that there would be separate bids for the men's, India 'A', under-19 and women's teams. So, both Sahara and Airtel, the main contenders, could well walk out of the BCCI office with a smile.
