On the road in southern India, still unable to find enough time to post here. Never mind. But I did read that Lalit Modi has submitted a reply to the show-cause notice the BCCI has issued to him. That reply runs into thousands of pages. It occasioned this comment from his legal counsel, Mehmood Abdi, as quoted in The Hindu yesterday (May 16):
"For an eminent lawyer and BCCI President Shashank Manohar, it should not take two hours to read 2000 to 5000 pages ... He should be able to read all the pages and wind up in four hours."
Ah, that's a relief. For a moment there I thought Abdi expected Manohar to read the pages in just three hours. Luckily he's allowed four.
