The BCCI has extended the deadline for Lalit Modi to respond to the second show-cause notice it issued to him on May 6, following a charge by Giles Clarke, the ECB chairman, that Modi was planning on setting up a parallel league in England. Modi will now have to submit his response by May 31, a ten-day extension from the original deadline.

"The extension was asked because they needed more time for formulating an appropriate reply," Mehmood Abdi, Modi's legal counsel, told Cricinfo. "The request was sent in two days back, and N Srinivasan's (the BCCI secretary) approval came back yesterday."

In his e-mail to the BCCI, Clarke alleged activities by Modi that he said were "detrimental to Indian cricket, English cricket and world cricket at large." Modi has dismissed the charge as "fiction".

Modi, on May 15, responded to the first show-cause notice - containing charges of financial impropriety - issued to him by the BCCI in typically dramatic fashion. The reply, along with the supporting documents, ran up to 15,000 pages packed in large cardboard cartons wheeled into the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai.
