BCCI convenes special general meeting to discuss Modi`s reply
Mumbai: The Cricket Board has convened a Special General Meeting (SGM) here on July 3 to discuss the replies of suspended Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi to the three show-cause notices slapped on him by BCCI.
"The Board`s SGM has been convened on July 3 in Mumbai to discuss the replies sent by Mr Modi," BCCI sources said today.
Modi was slapped a show-cause notice and suspended from all positions in the BCCI, including as chairman and commissioner of its sub-committee IPL, on April 25 soon after the conclusion of the final of the Twenty20 league.
Modi was accused of financial irregularities in the conduct of the league as well as rigging the bids for franchisees and he responded to the notice with a staggering reply running over 15,000 pages.
The Board issued him a second show cause notice – based on an email from England and Wales Cricket Board chairman Giles Clarke -- which accused him of trying to destroy the structure of world and Indian cricket on the day he replied to the first and he retorted with a 24-page reply.
The third and last notice issued to him related to alleged irregularities in the awarding of theatrical rights and 150-second commercial slot in between balls during the telecast of IPL III matches.
He responded to the third show cause notice a few days ago with a 50-page reply with supporting documents.
