Mumbai, May 15 (ANI): Suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi may not personally submit his reply to the notice given to him by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)

Reportedly, in an e-mail to BCCI secretary N. Srinivasan, Modi has said his lawyer Mehmood M. Abdi would deliver the reply.

In the email Modi has said that Abdi will carry all relevant documents to the BCCI headquarters at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday between 2.30 and 3.30 p.m.

Modi requested Srinivasan to depute some authorised person to "receive and acknowledge the documents by providing an adequate receipt."

Modi was earlier considering handing over the reply personally if the BCCI president Shashank Shekhar and secretary Srinivasan, were there to receive it.

The BCCI which served a notice to Modi on April 26 has given him 15 days (May 10 ) time to reply.

The BCCI later extended the time given to Modi till May 15.

The notice charges Modi of financial irregularity, but he has maintained that all decisions were taken collectively by the IPL Governing Council.

Modi is also facing the charges of receiving kickbacks for allotting TV broadcast rights and manipulating bids. (ANI)
