Not defending myself but IPL's image: Modi

May 16, 2010 21:56 IST

Suspended Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi on Sunday said his voluminous reply to the first BCCI showcause notice is not to defend himself but salvage the image of the Twenty20 event.

"My reply is not about defending Lalit Modi. It's about defending brand IPL," Modi tweeted.

Modi submitted his reply, which ran into 12,000 pages, through his lawyer Mehmood Abdi at the Board of Control for Cricket in India's headquarters, in Mumbai, yesterday.

"The reply is by my last count around 15000 pages. The team may have added more or getting ready to add more as we print thousands of mails," Modi wrote in another tweet.

He also said his reply contained all the answers to the "false" accusations made against him.
