Mumbai: Ratnakar Shetty, Chief Administrative Officer of the BCCI, told reporters that board president Shashank Manohar would take the final decision on the future steps that would be taken by BCCI after Lalit Modi’s reply to the board’s showcause notice.

He also said that board would follow the exact procedure and duly reply to all the charges which Lalit Modi has taken up in his reply to the showcause notice.

Modi, who had got an extension of five days from May 10 deadline, submitted his reply through his lawyers, who brought in the papers in four cars amidst the media frenzy at the Cricket Centre, the Board`s headquarters.

BCCI Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty received the papers and documents on behalf of the Board.

Modi`s lawyer Memmood S Abdi said the reply comprised of 12,000 pages but did not elaborate the content.
