New Delhi: Lalit Modi`s troubles compounded with the cricket board today slapping another showcause notice on the suspended IPL Commissioner for activities "detrimental to Indian Cricket, English Cricket and World cricket at large".

In a rather cryptic statement which did not reveal details, BCCI secretary N Srinivasan said the board acted on an e-mail from England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chairman Giles Clarke.

"The BCCI has issued another Show Cause Notice to Mr Lalit K Modi today, based on an email received from Mr Giles Clarke, Chairman, ECB, informing the President, BCCI, about the activities of Mr Lalit K Modi, which are detrimental to Indian Cricket, English Cricket and World cricket at large," Srinivasan said.

Modi was suspended from the Indian Premier League Commissioner`s post pending a BCCI probe into allegations of financial irregularities, nepotism and rigging bids and was given 15 days time to respond to the charges.
