BCCI issues Lalit Modi fresh notice

May 06, 2010 21:32 IST

Lalit Modi's troubles compounded on Thursday, with the Board of Control for Cricket in India 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 given 15 days' time to respond to the charges.
